Six-year-old Sophie faces home and school life in her unique, stoic fashion, which will draw a smile from both the young, empathetic reader and the most wearied parent. A classic story by the beloved author of Babe.
From the beloved author of Babe comes the third of six stories about Dick King-Smith's most adored (human!) character, the inimitable Sophie, re-imagined twenty years later by the witty, perceptive paintbrush of the award-winning Hannah Shaw. Life as a farmer-to-be is very varied. Sometimes it is hard work, like when Sophie's cat has kittens. Sometimes it can be sad, as Sophie finds out when the kittens are rehomed. And sometimes it's just mucky - like Sophie's jumper when she falls into that cowpat! But at least it's never dull...
This is Book 7 in the Sophie Adventures Series. See all Sophie Adventures books here.
