A classic story for young readers by the beloved author of Babe.From the beloved author of Babe comes the first of six stories about Dick King-Smith's most adored (human!) character, the inimitable Sophie, re-imagined twenty years later by the witty, perceptive paintbrush of the award-winning Hannah Shaw. Sophie loves animals of all kinds, but how will she grow up to be a farmer if she is not allowed any of her own? She goes looking for creatures to keep in her menagerie, but all she seems to find is trouble - yikes! And there is one pest she certainly doesn't want around: her prissy new neighbour, Dawn...
