Publisher's Summary

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.

1st book was Fantastic, this one is Better!

Would you listen to Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard again? Why?

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.

Magnificent.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed Peter Nimble and were excited to listen to Sophie Quire. In the beginning we were thrown a bit off-balance by the shift of focus from Peter to the new character Sophie, but quite soon we fell in love with Sophie's story. This tale is beautifully told and we were so sad to say goodbye at the end of the book. The Audible production was excellent and the narration complimented the story perfectly. We hope another Peter Nimble story finds its way into the world before too long. In the meantime, these are two stories I am sure we will find ourselves listening to again and again.

Amazing!

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 Children's Tale

If you could sum up Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard in three words, what would they be?

Captivating, memorable, adventure!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard?

The moment when the title character meets Peter Nimble for the very first time.

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to name here, and they're all spoilers!

Any additional comments?

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.

Best narrator we've ever heard!

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!
