Review by SueinCyprus
This is three books in one: the first three in the 'Sophie' series about a small but determined girl who wants to be a lady farmer when she grows up. <br/><br/>In 'Sophie's Snail' we meet the four-year-old Sophie who already has a strong character and a deep love for animal life, as well as her twin brothers Matthew and Mark. Sophie starts to save up for her farm, and adopts a wide variety of small creatures from her garden. <br/><br/>In 'Sophie's Tom', Sophie meets a black cat on her fifth birthday, which also happens to be Christmas Day. Her parents do not in the least want a cat, but Sophie has other ideas... Sophie starts school in this book, too. <br/><br/>In 'Sophie hits Six', Sophie gets more used to school, visits a farm show, and works on persuading her parents that the family should have a dog...<br/><br/>They're the first half of a wonderful series of books which I loved when my sons were small, and am delighted to be reading aloud to a young friend. Lots of great characterisation, humour that appeals to adults as well as the more earthy kind for children, and even some gentle educational material about farms and animals in general.
