The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a short children's story, first published by William Collins, Sons in 1968, written and illustrated by Judith Kerr. [1] The book concerns a girl called Sophie, her mother, and an anthropomorphised tiger who invites himself to their afternoon tea and consumes all the food and drink they have. The book remains extremely popular [2] more than 50 years after it was first published, and a theatrical adaptation of the story has been produced. A television adaptation of the book aired on UK's Channel 4 on Christmas Eve 2019 at 7:30pm GMT.

Yet unlike most games, the rules of taking tea are not available as they are mainly part of the English culture's "unwritten codes". 11 The unspoken nature of these rules causes problems for those who have not played the game before, as tea time presents them with a mine of social customs to carefully step around. As part of the socializing process and their induction into the culture of their nation, children have to be educated about this English practice. Children's literature is a key means by which such education happens; Carolyn Daniel views the use of food in children's literature as a way to help children “internalize all sorts of rules about food and eating", as well as about "how to perform properly in social situations". 12 The nineteenth-century poem Afternoon Tea is educative in a sense, reinforcing how to take tea correctly.
