Description

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.

Praise for Time-Out for Sophie by Rosemary Wells:

“[A] soon-to-be favorite… Readers will clamor for more of the irrepressible Sophie, while parents will secretly smile—sheer delight.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Wells’s signature artwork is vivid and pleasingly simple, and the characters are endearing." —School Library Journal, starred review

“As wise (and concise) as ever, Wells lets readers have guilt-free fun savoring Sophie’s naughtiness, but delivers the story’s aha moment with an equally deft hand.” —Publishers Weekly

“As always, Wells portrays her character’s developmentally appropriate behavior with genuine respect and affection.” —The Horn Book

“Wells captures a rite of passage—the terrible twos—both for the little one and for her exasperated parents.” —Booklist
