The description for this book is incorrect. Oh how I love the Sophie books! I recently bought the whole series at Better World Books because none of our local libraries have them. "Sophie, though small, was very determined."
A book that is greatly under appreciated. The audiobook of this is also sublime.
These books definitely stand up to time. I'm enjoying re-reading them.
Good collection of children's books

Dick King-Smith was born and raised in Gloucestershire, England, surrounded by pet animals. After twenty years as a farmer, he turned to teaching and then to writing children's books.

Dick writes mostly about animals: farmyard fantasy, as he likes to call it, often about pigs, his special favorites. He enjoys writing for children, meeting the children who read his books, and knowing that they get
