Sophie is small but very determined. She loves animals and is going to be a lady farmer when she grows up. She already has herds of insects, a rabbit, and a cat, and now she has a puppy too. She befriends a pony called Bumblebee and a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig.

I grew up with the Sophie books, and now on second listening I find this entry as more of a filler compared to the rest of the series. The book seems to set up the rest of the series rather than introduce any new plotlines. This is the first story that Sophie does not get a new pet for example, instead discovers her love of horse riding, which sets up her plan for the final two books. However the situation with Dawn on the beach is amusing, as is the horse who is afraid of pig. Overall some good episodes but less impacting than the rest of the series.
Bernard Cribbins give an amazing performance to all the characters as usual, but his masterful tones as the Cornish farm owners is a stand out guest character in this story.
Yes, my other problem with this book is how short it is.
