The Tiger Who Came To Tea

4 Extra Debut. Rebecca Front's quirky take on all that's remarkable about everyday life. Childhood and the curious tale of the uninvited guest who set up home in the living room.

Rebecca Front reads from her 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.
