Book Description

2 Jan 2006 Sophie
A bumper edition of the first three bestselling Sophie titles. Sophie is small, but very determined. She loves animals - snails and cats and rabbits and dogs and pigs - and she wants to be a farmer when she grows up. Her best friend is Great-great-aunt Al from Scotland, who looks a bit like a bird, and her worst enemy is the dreadful Dawn. Follow Sophie's adventures in these three lively, fun-filled stories: "Sophie's Snail", "Sophie's Tom" and "Sophie Hits Six". Redesigned and relaunched, these lifelong classics will continue their exceptional sales, having sold over a million copies to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful collection of stories 22 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
I used to read this book as a child (i too am a sophie and was very much like the character - at the time!) and these stories brought me so much pleasure then, and were read and re-read, time and time again.

Recently purchased and only one page in, it brought back the same joy. Bought for a child this would make a lovely gift, that would certainly encourage reading (great use of language, rather than talking to kids like they are stupid - but the benefits of a larger text print :) )and as a 'grown up' i say go for it, bit of light, fun reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars We love Sophie! 5 Feb 2006
Format:Paperback
My 5 year old daughter thought the Sofie stories were really good and we, as adults, enjoyed reading them to her. Sophie is like a real little girl - not too PC - and my daughter could really identify with her.
We also have the story tapes which are good.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic! 6 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
My daughter loves these stories, first being read to her (age 5) and now reading them herself (just 7). They are funny and not sickly like the fairly magic type of story that she hates. I would recommend to any little girl!
