Sophie is small but very determined. She loves animals and 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 a girl called Dawn. She'd love to have a pony but doesn't think she'll ever be that lucky. She does meet a nice one though, while on holiday at the seaside, where she also makes friends with a pot-bellied pig. Follow Sophie's adventures in these six warm and funny stories from one of the world's favourite children's authors, Dick King-Smith.
