Hi Gordon,

In French, the possessive pronouns agree with the thing possessed and not the owner - 

C’est le crayon de Mathilde——>c’est son crayon /c’est le sien 

 

It’s Mathilde’s pencil ——> it’s hers

Because ‘crayon’ is masculine.

C’est la tablette de Pierre ——-> c’est sa tablette/ c’est la sienne 

Because 'tablette' is feminine.

It’s Pierre’s tablet ——> it’s his 

Hope this helps!
