Judith Kerr at The Jewish Museum

Tiger, Mog and Pink Rabbit:
A Judith Kerr Retrospective
at The Jewish Museum
Open Now
Until 14th October
Now open on Saturdays!

Judith Kerr must be one of the UK’s best loved authors. Her books, which include the famous The Tiger Who Came To Tea and the Mog series about a portly grey and white cat, have been a cherished part of the lives of legions of children for decades. This exhibition has come to London from Newcastle where it has been on display at the National Centre for Children’s Books and it has had rave reviews from visitors.

The exhibition has a huge array of original artwork and illustrations and also explores the fascinating background to When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, featuring the drawings Judith made as a child refugee fleeing Nazi Germany.

This is a great one for children in the summer holidays – they can even have tea with a life-size Tiger and curl up in Mog’s basket.

Judith Kerr is doing two talks at The Jewish Museum while the exhibition is on – they are bound to book up soon, so be quick.
