Celebrating 100 Years of Judith Kerr.
Open Monday - Saturday: 10am - 4pm
Queen’s Hall is delighted to present an exhibition that will explore the life and celebrate the work of one of Britain’s best known author-illustrators for children, Judith Kerr.
Commemorating the centenary of Judith Kerr’s birth and celebrating her incredible contribution to children’s literature, The Tiger Who Came to Tea the exhibition, originated by Seven Stories, the National Centre for Children’s Books, features high quality facsimiles of Judith Kerr’s original illustrations from the Seven Stories collection and promises to re-introduce the beloved picture book to a new generation.
Judith Kerr’s first picture book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, published by HarperCollins Children’s Books, began as a bedtime story for her own children and was published in 1968. It soon became a classic and by the time it celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2008, it had been translated into 11 languages and sold over five million copies. Alongside facsimiles of original artwork, notes and sketches, children will enjoy stepping into Sophie’s kitchen to have tea with a life-size tiger.
