Reviews

Gr 1-3-In the third book about Sophie and her suburban British family, the six-year-old, determined would-be farmer, raises a kitten, gets a rabbit from a beloved great-great aunt, and attends her first livestock show. The probably already dated references to royalty, Diana as ``queen someday'' and a pun on ``Furgie,'' will go right by the intended audience. As usual, King-Smith creates a strong central character, tells the story with humor, and gives animal lovers plenty to enjoy. Large print, short vignettes set off with plenty of white space, and Parkins's frequent black-line drawings give this novel an inviting look. A solid choice for readers who are making the transistion to longer books.-Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA
