Sophie means to be a good little mouse, but she just can't resist testing the limits with her patient parents and grandmother.

Eat supper? More fun to throw it on the floor.
Fold the laundry? More fun to knock over the pile.
Read with Grandma? More fun to steal her glasses.
And then it’s time out for Sophie!

Rosemary Wells has created a memorable new character, ready to take her place next to Max and Ruby, Yoko, and Noisy Nora. Sophie's adorable antics will strike a chord with children and parents alike.

After getting sent to time-out for unnecessary roughness during dinner with Mama (a mac and cheese dinner ends up on the floor twice) and upsetting the laundry Daddy has folded (also twice), Sophie comes up against a master: Granny.
