    ‘Sophie’s Misfortunes’ is an enjoyable book. I enjoyed it because I found it amusing to read about what goes through this mischievous, little, French girls mind and read about all of the trouble she gets into. ‘Sophie’s Misfortunes’ is a story about a French girl and her naughty doings which land her into all kinds of trouble. It is a quick and easy read that is quite funny. Each chapter is another naughty adventure.
    I also liked how it had little bits of French included with a glossary at the back with terms explained because, even though it has been translated, it gives you that French feel and reminds you that it has originated from France.
    I would recommend this book to anyone 7-years-old – 12 or 14 years old. I believe that this book is not suited to older teenagers as I believe it is focused to a younger audience. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an amusing, mischievous, quick and easy read.
    I rate this book a 7/10!


  2. Sophie’s Misfortunes is an amusing book filled with short stories of Sophie being naughty. I find all the adventures quite amusing and original. I am impressed that the author managed to write so many different adventures for Sophie, without having any overlap. My favourite adventure is when Sophie accidentally melts her gorgeous wax doll. It’s quite funny to read. I would recommend this book to children and pre-teens. I rate it a 7/10.


  3. This is the first book in the Fleurville Trilogy, the book takes us through the naughty adventures Sophie can get up to and the trouble she causes. However Sophie can be obedient at sometimes but usually it doesn’t last very long. She disobeys her mother and causes pranks to go terribly wrong. Why can’t she be behaved like her friends Camille and Madeleine or perhaps like her cousin Paul, instead she’s a naughty girl who is always up to mischief. I liked the book Sophie’s Misfortunes because Sophie does not listen to what other people say and instead unfortunate events occur. These unfortunate events are things that you thought Sophie would already know what not to do.
