The enchanting story of Sophie and her extraordinary tea-time guest has been loved by millions of children since it was first published 40 years ago. Now a new generation can enjoy this perennial children's classic in a mini edition. The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripy tiger! This modern classic picture book is perfect for reading aloud, or for small children to read to themselves time and again. All artwork has been re-originated and a fresh design approach has been used for this reformatted edition.
