Writer and illustrator Judith Kerr has died aged 95. Her publisher, HarperCollins, confirmed the news with a Tweet on Thursday. Judith Kerr was best known for her debut picture book The Tiger Who Came to Tea, which brought joy to generations of children and their parents. Readers also loved her long-running Mog series about the Thomas family and their cat – and When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, the first of Kerr’s autobiographical trilogy about moving from Germany, via Switzerland and France, to England in the 1930s with her own family. The author published her first book The Tiger Who Came to Tea, in her 40s – and it managed to reach its millionth sale in 2017. The book was inspired by her daughter Tacy. According to Nielsen, although originally published in 1968, it has remained in the top 5,000 books every year since records began.
