A delightful gift box with the entire set of stories about the ever-popular Sophie. Sophie is small, but very determined. She's crazy about 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. Sophie would love to have a pony, but doesn't think she'll ever be that lucky. She does meet a nice one called Bumblebee though, while on holiday at the seaside - where she also makes friends with a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig! Read all about Sophie, her family and friends - animal and human - in these six galloping stories: Sophie's Snail, Sophie's Tom, Sophie Hits Six, Sophie in the Saddle, Sophie Is Seven, Sophie's Lucky.
