The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripy tiger! The tiger is very hungry so he eats all the food in the cupboard and drinks all the water in the tap. Sophies mummy has nothing left to feed the family so they go to a local caf for tea and have sausages and chips and ice cream. The next day Sophie and her mummy go shopping to re-stock the cupboards and they also buy a very big tin of Tiger Food, just in case!
