The Sophie Stories by Dick King-Smith
Sophie is small, but very determined. She loves animals and she wants to be a farmer when she grows up. Her best friend is Great-great-aunt Al from Scotland, who looks a bit like a bird, and her worst enemy is a girl called Dawn. She'd love to have a pony, but doesn't think she'll ever be that lucky. She does meet a nice one though, while on holiday at the seaside, where she also makes friends with a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig! Follow Sophie's adventures in these six galloping stories, collected in a desirable slipcase.
