The Tiger Who Came to Tea was first published in 1968 and is now a bona-fide classic, selling over 5 million copies.

Judith has also written books for older children including When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit and The Other Way Round - both of which told the story of 1930s Germany from a child’s perspective. Awarded and OBE in 2012, she lives in Barnes in the same house she has been in since 1962 and has a son and a daughter.

    Once there was a goose called Katerina! Katerina was the only goose on her pond, and this made her very sad and rather lonely. Sometimes she thought she could see another goose in the side of the bank manager, Mr Buswell's shiny car. She would stare and stare at it, hoping that one day that goose would come out and join her on the pond. "Just look at that silly bird!" said Mr Buswell. But everyone liked Katerina no matter what he said. One dark Christmas night when everyone was at a party in the square, Katerina woke alone. She went to see the goose in the shiny car, but the goose had gone -- had he come out at last? And who was that man with the goose-sized bag coming out of the bank? Was he carrying a goose-sized companion for Katerina? When Katerina stops him to find out, she becomes the local heroine and gains a wonderful reward -- life on her pond will never be the same again!
