Apparently The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a well known book amongst young minds and their parents. After a capaccino and triple chocolate cake at the museums cafe, you may also want to take a look at the exhibition of this popular books original artwork and storyboards by the writer, Judith Kerr. The exhibition also includes her personal history and explains how her parents escaped Europe during the War following Hitler's invasion. The exhibition can be found on the first floor of Wolverhampton's Art Gallery and Museum.
It may stimulate your memories of school afternoon storytime sessions, or inspire you to sit the children in the super sized cat basket and read one of the books to your little ones. It will certainly create a vivid memory.
Make the most of the last week of the summer holidays and come along to the summer special ARTFORUM workshop ‘SUBVERTED STORIES’ on Tuesday 28 August, 2PM-4PM at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
