Author of classic picture books Judith Kerr talks about her picture books and her stories based on her own childhood and escape from Nazi Germany.

Kerr’s books, including The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Mog the Cat and When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, are loved by children of all ages. She’ll share stories of some of the cats in her life too, including the star of her new book Katinka’s Tail.

Kerr was born in Berlin and escaped Nazi Germany with her family at the age of 9. Her autobiographical novels based on her early years won international acclaim and are particularly popular in Germany as an introduction to a difficult period of the country’s history. Katinka’s Tail is a magical new book from this much-loved author and illustrator.

Here she talks to The Sunday Times children’s books editor Nicolette Jones.
