Would you listen to Sophie's Lucky again? Why?

Yes, I already have. tI is sad and exciting and it is always good to read something again that you already know.

What other book might you compare Sophie's Lucky to, and why?

It is like the Longest Whale Song by Jacqueline Wilson as they are both sad but also lucky for the child.

Which character – as performed by Bernard Cribbins – was your favourite?

I like Sophie best because she is the main character and believes in herself and gets to do so many things.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Sophie: she is unlucky, but lives to find luck, happiness and independence

Any additional comments?

Sophie is so determined and it shows that people can be both lucky and unlucky and that they can come through the unlucky periods of their lives and be stronger.

Every Child's Dream. A pony

What a treasure Trove of listening delights in the entire series of Sophie Stories by the incomparable Dick King Smith, writer of children’s stories.
Each story when read brings you to such a wonderful conclusion of this special little girl Sophie,(She wants to be a Lady Farmer) who is so determined, with hair that looks like she has been through a hedge row backwards. and her entire family including her beloved Octogenarian Aunt Al who lives in the Highlands of Scotland on a most desired farm!(with PONIES of course.)
You and your kiddiewinkies are in for a real treat when you listen to the wonderful heart warming stories, read by Bernard Cribbens who has that special voice that puts us all at ease. Just curl up with the children and listen with them, you won’t want to miss a single word.

Much to do with Aunt Al.

Where does Sophie's Lucky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Aunt Al is Sophie's great-great aunt, and her favorite great-great aunt as well! Aunt Alice, most often called Aunt Al has a special fondness for Sophie and when it comes time to prepare her will Aunt Al takes special care of Sophie and her family.

A delightful story with animal issues (escaped bunny) and reminders to be nice (the scolding from Aunt Al) and even football injuries (thanks to Matt and Mark).

A quick listen and a great series. Try to listen in order:

Sophie's Snail
Sophie's Tom
Sophie Hits Six
Sophie Is Seven
Sophie's Lucky
