"Sophie fans will be delighted by this fifth installment in the series about Sophie, who is now about to turn seven. New readers will also enjoy Dick King-Smith's lively young character who has a mind of her own. Sophie has ambitions of one day becoming a lady farmer and she's not afraid to work for her goal. It's the start of a busy couple of months - she visits a farm, celebrates her seventh birthday, and forms a binding business attachment. Readers of all ages will enjoy Sophie's antics. A terrific story to read aloud." - Debby Buchanan, Children's Literature.
