The fabulous children’s writer and illustrator Judith Kerr died today at 95.

Daughter of the Berlin critic Alfred Kerr, who took his own life in exile, she wrote some of the most beloved bedtime stories, including the Mog series and The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

Music was essential in her life. In a radio coversation with Michael Berkely, she chose works by her own parents, as well as Mozart, Holst and Prokofiev.




  • Greg Bottini says:

    I had no knowledge of her until I saw her memorial segment today on BBC World News America.
    Well, I learned that she was a beautiful person who lived a very interesting (and musical) life, and who gave so much to the world of children’s books.
    Just the kind of person I would like to have known.
    Rest in peace, dear lady.
