Seven Stories was extremely sad to hear of the death, on 22 May 2019, of Judith Kerr, author and illustrator of The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Mog the Forgetful Cat, and many other much-loved stories for children.   

Judith was a dear friend to Seven Stories and it has been our privilege to work closely with her over a number of years.  We will miss her enormously.

Seven Stories has been the home of Judith's archive since 2008. The archive includes almost all of her published artwork, along with an extraordinary series of childhood drawings, sketches from her art school days just after the Second World War, and other unpublished material. Seven Stories has twice staged major exhibitions of Judith's work and The Tiger Who Came to Tea exhibition, created in partnership with Harper Collins and National Trust, is currently on tour at National Trust properties nationwide until 2020.
