    1. That's odd.I really enjoyed Sophie's Snail, and only a few weeks have passed between the time of that story (summer into autumn) and this one which begins at Christmas, Sophie's fifth birthday. Oddly enough, Sophie starts school at the end of the Christmas vacation, but she lives in the UK, maybe it's different there.I have to say, though, I didn't find Sophie at all charming in this book. From being a stolid but sensible little girl, she has become selfish and bossy. She "makes friends" with th [...]


    2. Sophie’s Tom by Dick King-Smith – Realistic Fiction, 2nd-3rd grade – Interesting little story that is actually a series. Sophie is an imaginative, persistant little girl who has a difficult time accepting change and making friends. Some children don’t understand her since she likes to keep bugs and is quite fierce. Her persistence includes her certainty that she is going to run a farm when she grows up and that she has a cat named Tom. I thought this story developed well, might be a fun [...]


    3. I enjoyed reading it and the children (5 &3) enjoyed listening. We read it all in just over an hour this morning. Sophie is pretty grumpy but (with occasional tweaking in the reading) all that gives good opportunity to reflect on what she is thinking and doing.Her truth telling along with fierce determination make her a likeable character overall. Even if she does puzzle my daughter ['Daddy, why is Sophie not wearing a dress?' (she is not despite the fact it is her birthday AND Christmas!)]. [...]


    4. This is the second book of the Sophie series. It was about Sophie where she finds a cat on the street and their parents brings it back home. They take really good care of the cat and names it Tom. I especially like the part when the find the cat and bring it home. My favourite character was Tom because he is very playful. I recommend this book to children 8+


    5. Once I was introduced to the Sophie series, it was only a matter of time before I had the whole collection. I really enjoyed Sophie's antics - they obviously appealed to me as a young girl of around the same age.


    6. The description for this book is incorrect. Oh how I love the Sophie books! I recently bought the whole series at Better World Books because none of our local libraries have them. "Sophie, though small, was very determined."


    7. Love sharing this series with my little girl - they are written well and keep both of us interested and are unable to put it down at bedtime X
