Imagine our surprise when, after clearing the dinner plates, we return to find Sophie standing on the dining table finishing off a platter of chicken. The little angel has crept in, clambered up on a chair and then launched herself onto the table where the goodies are. This is nothing if not enterprising. Her brother wouldn't dream of doing this.
