The Tiger Who Came to Tea

Rebecca Front reads from her new book, a collection of anecdotes and yarns exploring all that is remarkable about everyday life.

"Being curious was my starting point, in both the active sense - being interested in people and things; and the passive - being, as we all are, a bit odd."

To begin with, a singular tale from childhood, where an uninvited guest takes up residence in the Front family living room.
