Before I ask my question I must tell you that you are "Story Book Royalty" in our family! My son and daughter were both brought up with The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Mog and now my three grandchildren adore them too.
"The Tiger Who Came to Tea" is an absolute favourite and there is no longer any "reading" necessary as the children can recite the story from memory using different voices for the various characters in the story and they always manage to pause in the right place ready for the turning of the page. We have seen the stage show a couple of times too which I have to say is an excellent adaptation and does the book proud!
My question is this; When you wrote "The Tiger Who Came to Tea" did you in any was imagine it would be as popular as it has become and that it would be still loved by children over 40 years later? Also what is your opinion of the Stage Show and did you have any input?
Thank you so much.
