The Lovereading4Kids comment
With delightful illustrations throughout, this is a lovely tale about a young girl coping with change and discovering that friends can be found in the most unlikely of places.
Sophie has just moved to Paris and although it’s a beautiful and exciting place to live she misses her old house, her friends and her cat called Oscar. Struggling to make friends at her new school she is finding it hard to settle in to her new life, until that is, she meets Josephine. Josephine who wears a pink tutu, adores Lavender Macaroons and just happens to be a Guinea Pig.
Soon Sophie discovers that there is far more than meets the eye to Paris and beneath the grassy slopes leading to the Sacré Coeur. With Josephine’s help Sophie begins to enjoy her new home and also discovers the courage to stand up to mean girl Adrienne, who bullies her once too often at school. Sophie's Squeaky Surprise is a wonderful start to Holly Webb's heart-warming, humorous series. ~ Shelley Fallows
Sophie's Squeaky Surprise by Holly Webb
Sophie isn't happy about moving to a strange new country and starting at a new school. But then she meets Josephine - a macaroon-eating, tutu-wearing guinea pig, who lives with her furry friends in the centre of Paris. Josephine soon shows Sophie that living in a new place is exciting and being friends with a guinea pig is the best adventure of all.
