Summary
Read this captivating adventure by Jonathan Auxier, New York Times bestselling author of The Night Gardener.

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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Twelve-year-old Sophie Quire is a gifted bookmender, like her mother, who mysteriously died when Sophie was young. She also loves reading, finding joy and escape in the stories filling her father's bookshop. But storybooks may disappear altogether in Bustleburgh after Inquisitor Prigg decides they are nonsense and is determined to destroy them all in a mass book burning. Then gifted, cocky thief Peter Nimble arrives with an intriguing, magical book needing repair. The book, it seems, is one of a set, and when Professor Cake charges the trio with collecting them, it begins a perilous quest full of events and beings and unexpected revelations. Set two years after Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes (2011) and rife with suspense, droll and poignant moments, and the occasional brutal confrontation, Auxier's worthy, absorbing follow-up is also a thought-provoking look at classic literary tropes, including their fanciful, sometimes darker, nature and themes. Vividly drawn, diverse characters enrich the story, from evil enchantress Madame Eldritch to sardonic, astute tigress Akrasia. And while fans of the first installment will welcome artful, engaging Peter's return, they will be equally enchanted by intrepid, heartfelt Sophie, who truly becomes the hero of her own magical adventure. Ultimately, this affecting, compelling story stands on its own, embodying and highlighting the power and impact of tales well told and why they endure.--Rosenfeld, Shelle Copyright 2016 Booklist"
