Sophie's Further Adventures

By Dick King-Smith
Illustrated by Hannah Shaw

Small but very determined, Sophie is everyone's favourite farmer-to-be! Now she is off on three more adventures in this bind-up of classic stories for young readers, from the beloved author of Babe.

From the beloved author of Babe come three more adventures from feisty farmer-to-be Sophie. Now whimsically re-imagined by the perceptive paintbrush of award-winning illustrator Hannah Shaw. In this book Sophie visits the farm, learns to ride a pony AND gets to visit Great Aunt Al in the Scottish Highlands! Sophie always makes a big impression, and these stories beautifully capture the dynamics of family life. Timeless adventures with a fresh, contemporary feel.
