When I first read the book, my impression was 'what is so special in this classic'. But there is something in the way story is written, illustrated and paced. Children really enjoy it and the story grows on you as you read it more number of times.
My three year old specially enjoys when the tiger swallows all the sandwiches on the plate in one big mouthful 'Owp'. And loves the part where tiger finishes all the food and drinks in the house.
Not to mention how daddy had an idea for the family to go to a cafe.
Try it with your children and I feel you won't be disappointed with the purchase. It is regular story in our bedtime routine.
