  • Zoo Boy

    Sophie Thompson

    Paperback (Faber & Faber Children's, Feb. 4, 2016)
    Hello, Dear Reader. Are you sitting, lying down, standing on your head, eating a jam sandwich comfortably? Then I'll begin... I want to introduce you to a boy called Vince, whose birthday it is today...Vince is an normal boy with an unusual dislike for animals. Well, you'd feel the same if your father was always working at a zoo and your mother had run off with a lion tamer. Then, on his eighth birthday, Vince discovers he has "the gift". He can talk to animals! You think this is amazing? Perhaps you should meet the spoiled and demanding zoo animals that Vince encounters. There's a penguin who wants fish fingers, a flamingo that wants pink candyfloss and an owl that wants sugared mice. Now Vince is expected to meet their demands... on his birthday! But everyone seems to have forgotten about that...A hilarious, delightful debut for 6+ readers by actress Sophie Thompson, with black and white illustrations by the wonderfully talented Rebecca Ashdown.

  • Mary Poppins

    P.L. Travers, Sophie Thompson

    Audio CD (Listening Library (Audio), June 10, 2008)
    Mary Poppins is like no other nanny the four Banks children have ever seen. She whirls into their home and “spit-spot,” she works her inimitable brand of magic to make even the bland seem extraordinary. An endless source of fascinating adventure, she slides up the banister, produces an array of tricks from her seemingly empty carpetbag, and ensures the Banks’ lives will never be the same.“When Mary Poppins is about, her young charges can never tell where the real world merges into make-believe. Neither can the reader–and this is one of the hallmarks of good fantasy.” – The New York Times “Delightful nonsense that defies an age boundary of appreciation.” — Booklist
