Description

You've met Peter Nimble. Now meet Sophie Quire in a new, unforgettable quest.
     It's been two years since Peter Nimble and Sir Tode rescued the kingdom of HazelPort. In that time, they have travelled far and wide in search of adventure. Now Peter and Sir Tode have been summoned by Professor Cake for a new mission: 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.

"The fast-paced plotting, the natural conversations between friends and foes, and the message about word magic will hold readers at the edge of their seats from the opening page until the final scene." --Sal's Fiction Addiciton
PRAISE FOR Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes:

"Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes is as delightful a magical story as readers ages 9-14 will hope to find. Part hero quest, part orphan saga, and wholly captivating." --Wall Street Journal

"Lots of creepiness, memorable characters, a worthy message ... make this cautionary tale one readers will not soon forget." --Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews 

"Suspenseful and chilling, this novel is destined to become a classic." --Governor General's Award Committee
