Gr. 2^-4. Think of Sophie as a slightly plump, more determined, British Ramona. In her fourth appearance, Sophie, now nearly seven, is still fixed on owning a farm and farm animals, but she's also headed for riding lessons. The lessons actually arrive late in the book, after readers have followed Sophie through a classroom unit on farm life and numerous fund-raising ventures. Her trenchant discussion of cows, udders, and "you have to have a bull" is memorable. Neither Sophie's personality nor King-Smith's prose are fluffy or fussy; everything seems just right. Fans of the previous books will be well pleased. Mary Harris Veeder
