Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard by Jonathon Auxier
Release Date ~ April 5, 2016
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 twelve-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.
Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard, the second book in the Peter Nimble series is a delightful tale!
It is targeted for middle graders (8-12) but is so well written and engaging that it can be enjoyed by all ages.
This story has an engaging plot, great banter among the main characters and is loaded with action, adventure, mystery and magic. It really does have it all and I can't imagine a child not being enamored with this series.
would make a great read aloud book to younger children as well!
Thank you to Amulet Books and Netgalley for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review.
