Synopsis

Sophie Hits Six by Dick King-Smith

Six-year-old Sophie faces home and school life in her unique, stoic fashion, which will draw a smile from both the young, empathetic reader and the most wearied parent. A classic story by the beloved author of Babe. From the beloved author of Babe comes the third 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. Life as a farmer-to-be is very varied. Sometimes it is hard work, like when Sophie's cat has kittens. Sometimes it can be sad, as Sophie finds out when the kittens are rehomed. And sometimes it's just mucky - like Sophie's jumper when she falls into that cowpat! But at least it's never dull...

Reviews

Rich in humour with a tremendous understanding of what makes small children tick. (Sunday Times)

About the Author

Dick King-Smith

Dick King-Smith was born in 1922 and brought up in Gloucestershire.

Dick served with the Grenadier Guards during World War II and was mentioned in dispatches. He then spent twenty years working as a farmer and a short period teaching in a primary school before becoming a full-time writer.

Dick wrote over seventy stories, many of which have animal characters for the simple reason that, "I like them, I've always kept a lot of pets, and because it's fun putting words in their mouths." His farming years were the inspiration for many of his books, and pigs have featured in several of them because they are his favourite animal. Dick won the 1984 Guardian Fiction Award for The Sheep-Pig, which was later turned into an Oscar-winning film, 'Babe'. He died in 2011.
