Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bernard Cribbins

Children Ages 6+ • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The Sophie series is a delightfully inspiring example of girl power. Narrator Bernard Cribbins makes listening to strong-willed and sometimes stubborn Sophie fun, even laugh-out-loud funny. He also captures her long-suffering parents with sounds of loving exasperation as they deal with their independent daughter. Sophie wants to be a "lady farmer" when she grows up, and she's already working toward her goal. Also well portrayed are the voice and Scots accent of elderly Aunt Al, who’s as charming—and bossy—as Sophie. Listeners of all ages will enjoy—and get a bonus vocabulary lesson when Sophie mispronounces or misuses some words and is corrected by her parents and teachers. S.G.B.
