Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, but left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape the Nazis. They arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France. There she met her husband, the celebrated screenwriter Nigel Kneale, and they had two children together; Judith wrote `The Tiger Who Came to Tea' for them. She followed it with the beloved series of books about Mog the Forgetful Cat, as well as her semi-autobiographical Out of the Hitler Time trilogy. She was awarded an OBE in 2012 for services to children's literature and holocaust education, and was also awarded the Booktrust Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016. She celebrated her 90th birthday in 2013, and continues to write and illustrate children's books from her home in London.
