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.

The sequel does not disappoint

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

We would definitely listen to it again as it was gripping adventure that all the family enjoyed.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Too hard to choose as they were all great.

What about Michael Page’s performance did you like?

The voices he did were fabulous and consistent with the first book.

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.
