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.

A good book but violent!!!😱☠⚔🗡⚰

I like this story but it is more scary and violent than the last one. I think that maybe a 10-year-old could read this book and be a little scared, but if you let a seven-year-old read this, and freak out because this story is a little weird in some parts although maybe an eight-year-old could read the first one if they were brave. But I am A nine-year-old what do I know about these things!!!

Excellent Sequel<br />

We enjoyed Peter Nimble, and enjoyed Sophie Quire as well. The narration was just sublime.

Even better than the first

I had enjoyed the first in this series (Peter Nimble and the Fantastic Eyes), and enjoyed this one even more. It is an extremely well written fantasy that both kids and adults will enjoy- altough there are some gruesome parts. The narrator did not disapoint, and is seriously one of my new favorites. I will be on the hunt for other books he has narrated. He has an amazing variety of voices that matches each characters personality perfectly.

Loved the reader

I would listen to this book every time, because the reader is so intriguing. He does different and very fun voices for the characters. The story was not quite as good as Peter Nimble and the Fantastic Eyes, but was entertaining.
