Publisher's Summary

Read by Geraldine McEwan. This classic story has been loved by millions of children since it was first published over 40 years ago.

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!

Critic Reviews

"A modern classic." ( The Independent)
"This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house." ( Junior Magazine)

This is not the original!

We LOVE this book, but the Audible version is expanded to almost twice the length of the original story, which is unnecessary and disappointing.

Good presentation of classic story

Well spoken.good choice of actors. Extra words (describing the pictures) can be confusing when you go back to the book.

Extraneous internal monologue

A male narrator has freestyled what he imagined is the tiger’s internal monologue and makes quite horrifying eating and digestion sounds

A Classic for Toddlers!

My (almost) two year old loves the book. She is not sure what to make of audiobooks yet!
My only criticism would be that the narration would benefit from more animation.

A lovely childrens tale.

This is a beautifully narrated story. My granddaughter loved it . It has become one of her favourite bedtime stories. Her best bit is when the tiger eats all the buns . One to buy if you are looking for a great book .

My two year old loves this!

Very well read, I liked how there were different readers doing different voices.
My two year old even liked the intro tune.
Money well spent :)
