Sweet Sofia is off on an adventure with her troop of Buttercups. Their mission is to perform certain tasks and earn special badges and pins. Sofia is determined to get the sunflower pin and the Buttercups' nature hike is the perfect place to accomplish her goal. There is only one problem: Baileywick is coming along to help keep Sofia safe, but his overprotective ways are keeping the independent princess from completing tasks on her own. Sofia will have to find a way to distance herself from Baileywick if she wants to get the sunflower pin on this trip!
This Sofia the First adventure is based on "The Buttercups'" episode of the popular Disney series. Disney is always a delight and never disappoints. The artwork provided for this book is stunning and true to the television series. The book is also well made and sturdy for library or home use. The story line is very interesting and exciting for little readers. Sofia is a wonderful character for children to learn from and admire. This book as well as all of the others in Sofia's series are treasures for the imagination.
