The tiger who came to tea – kalandraka – storyteller
First published in 1968, Judith Kerr’s The Tiger Who Came to Tea remains one of the best-selling and best-loved children’s books in the UK. It was an instant hit with my son too, from the first time we read it to him at around eighteen months old, and it looks set to remain one of his favorite books for quite some time yet.
The sudden irruption of this «huge, striped, furry tiger» into a completely routine mother-daughter scene is portrayed as exciting and amusing, but at the same time as something absolutely natural and devoid of any major problem. A tiger arrives for a snack? Nothing, let it happen, let it happen. The mother and daughter are both participants and observers of each scene and this makes the readers feel that they are also watching and participating. Thus, the reader is drawn into the story and is presented with the rather amusing possibility that the doorbell could ring at any time in their house and that it could also turn out to be a tiger. Can anyone think of anything better to imagine on any given afternoon at home?
