It's been two years since Peter Nimble and Sir Tode rescued the kingdom of HazelPort. In that time, they have traveled far and wide in search of adventure. Now they have been summoned by Professor Cake for a new mission: To find a 12-year-old bookmender named Sophie Quire.
Sophie knows little beyond the four walls of her father's bookshop, where she repairs old books and dreams of escaping the confines of her dull life. But when a strange boy and his talking cat/horse companion show up with a rare and mysterious book, she finds herself pulled into an adventure beyond anything she has ever read.

Yes, because it is faced paced and there are loads of magical (and other different) characters and animals. Sophie is endearing and strong willed, or purpose driven, in the delightful way that many little girls are of today. Peter and Mr. Toad are at their best, and we learn more back story to the professor (and much is also revealed in the books of Who What When & Where). During Perter & Sophie's journey they learn to work together, appreciate each other and those around them, teach the value of kindness and friendship and forgiveness. Highly recommend this book for all ages.
Michael Page is AMAZING at bringing this world to life. We love everything about the book and it's characters and he reads them just as we would wish. This is our new favorite series!
Loved it! A well written, fast paced story that will draw you in. And underneath it all, an answer to the question, "Why do we need stories?" is conveyed (not said, but conveyed!). This book is a fun read. But be warned. It will leave you wanting more....more books, more stories, more courage, more wonder, more delight, more like Sophie Quire. And, most importantly, a longing for TRUTH. BEAUTY. GOODNESS.
Captivating, memorable, adventure!
The moment when the title character meets Peter Nimble for the very first time.
Too many to name here, and they're all spoilers!
Michael Page really made this story come alive; his narration of the characters was lively and wonderful. I found that this story wasn't as immediately engaging as the first (Peter Nimble) book, but hang in through the first few slower chapters, as they lay the groundwork for the rest of the tale.
