Hello. I'm Maxine.
Thank you for joining me for a bedtime story.
Have you had your tea yet?
Sophie, in tonight's bedtime story, is having her tea
when a very unusual guest arrives.
The story is called The Tiger Who Came To Tea, and it's by Judith Kerr.
Once there was a little girl called Sophie.
She was having tea with her mummy in the kitchen.
Suddenly, there was a ring at the door.
Sophie's mummy said, "I wonder who that can be.
"It can't be the milkman, because he came this morning.
"It can't be the boy from the grocer, because this isn't the day he comes.
"It can't be Daddy, because he has got his key.
"We had better open the door and see."
Sophie opened the door, and there was a big, furry, stripy tiger.
The tiger said, "Excuse me, but I'm very hungry.
"Do you think I could have tea with you?"
Sophie's mummy said, "Of course. Come in."
So the tiger came into the kitchen and sat down at the table.
Sophie's mummy said, "Would you like a sandwich?"
But the tiger didn't just take one sandwich, he took all
the sandwiches on the plate and swallowed them in one big mouthful.
And he still looked hungry.
So Sophie passed him the buns.
But again, the tiger didn't eat just one bun,
he ate all the buns on the dish.
In then he ate all the biscuits and all the cake,
until there was nothing left to eat on the table.
So Sophie's mummy said, "Would you like a drink?"
The tiger drank
all the milk in the milk jug
and all the tea in the teapot.
And then, he looked round the kitchen,
to see what else he could find.
He ate all the supper that was cooking in the saucepans,
all the food in the fridge,
and all the packets and tins in the cupboard.
And he drank all the milk and all the orange juice
and all Daddy's beer.
And all the water in the tap.
Then he said,
"Thank you for my nice tea,
"I think I had better go now."
And he went.
Sophie's mummy said, "I don't know what to do.
"I have got nothing for Daddy's supper. The tiger has eaten it all."
And Sophie found she couldn't have a bath,
because the tiger had drunk all the water in the tap.
Just then, Sophie's daddy came home.
So Sophie and her mummy told him what had happened
and how the tiger had eaten all the food and drunk all the drink.
Sophie's daddy said, "I know what we'll do. I've got a very good idea.
"We will put on our coats and go to a cafe."
So they went out into the dark, and all the streetlamps were lit,
and all the cars had their lights on.
And they walked down the road to the cafe.
And they had a lovely supper, with sausages and chips and ice cream.
In the morning, Sophie and her mummy went shopping
and they bought lots more things to eat.
They also bought a very big tin of tiger food,
in case the tiger should come to tea again.
But he never did.
HE BLOWS THE TRUMPET
And that story was called The Tiger Who Came To Tea.
Imagine if a tiger came to tea with you!
Well, it's time for you to go to bed.
I hope you will join me again soon for another bedtime story.
