imagine… tells the story of Judith Kerr, creator of some of our best-loved children’s books, including ‘Mog’ and ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. Now 90, she still runs up the stairs to work all day in her attic studio.
Born in Berlin, she was forced to flee Germany aged nine as her father, a writer, was an outspoken opponent of the Nazis. Her children’s novel When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit tells their story and is now a set text in German schools. With Alan Yentob, she revisits Berlin and takes tea in the London kitchen to which that tiger came. With Lauren Child, Michael Morpurgo and Michael Rosen.
this is a beautifully straightforward documentary
on a hugely likeable figure.

What a pleasure it was to look at the world through
Kerr’s eyes for a little while …Ellen E Jones, The Independent
