Small, but very determined, Sophie loves animals and is going to be a farmer when she grows up. Sophie’s fond of most creatures - especially little ones like snails - but there’s one she cannot stand: her prissy new neighbour Dawn!
On her fifth birthday, Sophie gets a model farm and lots of toy animals. What she wants most of all, though, is a real animal – like a cat. Sophie puts her strong will to good use in convincing her parents to let her keep Tom, a stray black cat who flits in and out of her life.
Sophie Hits Six
Sophie’s cat, Tom has surprised them all by producing four kittens. There are more animals to come in the year that Sophie hits six, finds a new farming ally, and makes a triumphant entrance into the sporting arena.
Sophie in the Saddle
In Cornwall for the summer holidays, Sophie feeds a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig, stays on a farm, meets some new friends and starts riding lessons. She also learns to swim, encounters an old enemy on the beach and has her first ever horseback ride on Bumblebee, a grey pony.
Sophie is Seven
In this book Sophie visits a farm, makes a big impression at the school concert, celebrates her seventh birthday and starts riding lessons!
Sophie would love to have a pony, but she doesn’t think she’ll ever be that lucky. She does get a lucky break, though, when Great Aunt Al invites her to Scotland!
