What’s really going on in Judith Kerr’s classic children’s book ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’? Is there a deeper meaning?
Having read it MANY times, and over analysed it, I’m pretty sure it’s not about a Tiger coming to tea…
After a bad day of parenting, who hasn’t wanted to blame the tiger for all the things you haven’t done around the house.
And some days, I have certainly fancied cracking open the beers early. Potty training springs to mind. But moving beer o’clock to before all the household chores are done is a clearly risky proposition.
Look at the dad’s face in this picture. He looks a bit like he’s heard this all before. All credit to him, he goes along with it anyway.
