The Teeger That Cam For His Tea (The Tiger Who Came To Tea in Scots)

By (author) Judith Kerr; By (translator) Susan Rennie

‘There is a chap at the door jist as Sophie an her mum are sittin doon for their tea. Wha could it be? They dinna think it’s a muckle, furry, strippit teeger — that’s for shair!’

No children’s bookshelf is complete without the classic The Tiger Who Came to Tea, but what if Sophie opened the door to find a teeger that’s cam for his tea instead?

Celebrating its 50th roaring anniversary in 2018, Judith Kerr’s much-loved picture book is charmingly retold for the first time in Scots.

Keeping all the iconic elements of the story, Scots expert Susan Rennie gives the words a lively Scots twist — a plate of sandwiches becomes a ‘hail plate o pieces’ and the big, furry, stripy tiger becomes a ‘muckle, furry, strippit teeger’.

This bright and bonnie take on a childhood favourite is perfect for reading aloud with young children.
