Judith Kerr

The author of The Tiger Who Came to Tea and the series of books following Mog the Cat, Judith Kerr was born on 14 June, 1923 in Berlin, Germany and came to Britain with her family in 1933 as they fleed from the Nazis. 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.

    Collection 11 years +
    Hand-picked favourites
    Having sold over 1.2 million copies of her books in the UK alone, Judith Kerr is one of our most cherished authors.

    The three books in this collection are partly inspired by her childhood growing up during the Second World War. They're poignant, emotional and told with great humour.

    When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit is the unforgettable story of a Jewish family fleeing from Germany before the start of WWII. It finds 9-year-old Anna's father going missing. Straight away she and her brother Max are rushed away, in alarming secrecy, to a completely new place. Everything they know from Germany - home, schoolmates, toys - will now be a distant memory.

    In Bombs on Aunt Daity (previously published as The Other Way Round), Anna is a teenager and she's living in London during the Blitz. The bombs are coming from Germany - the country that was once her own. How will she and her beloved refugee family survive if Hitler does invade?

    The final book in the trilogy is A Small Person Far Away. In this emotional tale, Anna has to head back to Berlin to visit her dangerously ill Mama. While there, she will have to face a past that she has shut away for so long.
