New-look reissues of the ever-popular series about the animal-loving Sophie. Small, but very determined, Sophie loves animals and is going to be a farmer when she grows up. On her fifth birthday, Sophie gets a model farm and lots of toy animals. What she wants most of all, though, is a real animal – a cat like Tom, for example.
