The British actor lent his voice alongside the book’s writer and illustrator Judith Kerr, 94, in marking 50 years since the book was first published as they read to a group of children and their parents.

Flanked by a full-size tiger, the pair delighted around 150 youngsters on Tuesday with narrations of the work and another Kerr book, The Crocodile Under The Bed.

First published in 1968, The Tiger That Came To Tea concerns a young girl, Sophie, her mother, and a hungry tiger who interrupts their afternoon tea.
