Ten Kisses for Sophie!
Aunt Prunella’s birthday party is tomorrow, and Sophie and her mama are making a delicious treat: chocolate kisses with pistachio buttercream filling. There are ten of them, just enough for all the guests, with one for Sophie too, of course. Sophie’s so excited, but when one more guest shows up unexpectedly, she’s desperately worried that she won’t get one of the delicious kisses. Fortunately, Granny figures out the cause of Sophie’s distress and comes up with a way to save the day.
Fans of Rosemary Wells’s previous books, especially the previous books about Sophie and her family, will love Ten Kisses for Sophie! Young readers will easily identify with Sophie’s fears that she’ll be the one left out when it comes time for dessert, just as they’ll understand her intense desire to eat them right away and the anxiousness that makes it hard for her to fall asleep that night. The illustrations are, of course, absolutely adorable, with bright colors and recognizable facial expressions and plenty of visual love. This is an adorable book that younger readers will love reading at bedtime, in the morning, or whenever!
