Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, but left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape the Nazis. They arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. There she met her husband, the celebrated screenwriter Nigel Kneale, and they had two children together; Judith wrote `The Tiger Who Came to Tea' for them. She followed it with the beloved series of books about Mog the Forgetful Cat, as well as her semi-autobiographical Out of the Hitler Time trilogy.She was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to children's literature and holocaust education, and was also awarded the Booktrust Lifetime Acheivement Award in 2016. She celebrated her 90th birthday in 2013, and continues to write and illustrate children's books from her home in London.Review:
"It's no surprise Judith's work is still popular. It owes nothing to the vagaries of style or fashion. Her warmth and humanity are timeless." Michael Foreman `Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying.'

The Independent.`This book has enduring charm and young children will delight in the preposterous notion of a tiger creating mayhem in the house.' Junior MagazinePraise for `Mog the Forgetful Cat':`Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!' Choice MagazinePraise for Goodbye Mog:`Kerr's warmth, humour and honesty make this an engaging introduction to a difficult topic.' Financial Times`Believable, amusing and moving.' Nursery World`A supremely sensitive story.' The TimesPraise for `One Night in the Zoo':`Lovely... uses soothing, pastel illustrations and exotic animals to make basic counting seem unintimidating.' Daily Telegraph
