Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard
Book 2, Peter Nimble Series
Recommended for Ages 9

Jonathan Auxier continues his fantastic Peter Nimble series with Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard. In Storyguard, young bookbinder Sophie Quire finds herself teamed up with Peter Nimble on a quest to continue her deceased mother's work protecting a very rare and powerful quartet of books: Who, What, When, and Where. A cast of colorful characters help (and hinder) Sophie as she tries to locate each book before a mysterious villain who is not only after the books, but murdered her mother.

Storyguard is packed with action and humor in a plot that is well paced and engaging. Readers will enjoy the fully realized characters with more dimension than simply good or evil. While intense moments occur with fantastic frequency and the story culminates in a [light spoilers begin here] city-wide battle of epic proportions, young readers shouldn't fear a heavy load. By the end of the tale everything is as it should be which makes Storyguard perfect for both middle graders and high-skill younger readers clamoring for magic and adventure. Those familiar with classic fairy tales will recognize some familiar faces in the cast and chuckle when narrative "breaks the fourth wall".

An added bonus of the tale is that Storyguard works well as a stand-alone book. Those readers not able to read Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes first shouldn't fear reading the duet out of order. The end of Storyguard beautifully sets up the possibility of a third installment (which appears to involve the mysterious "League of Maps). Enjoy!

How can you not love a book that combines a love of books, magic, and a reluctant hero's quest? And a book that makes me cry in the end is a bonus. The staggered edges of the paper make it a joy to hold the book, too, and turn its pages. My fourth and fifth graders may have a hard time with some of the killing (as did I; I think we could have done without much of it), so I'll make sure to check in with those who are reading it, but it's definitely going in our school library to add to our fantasy collection.

Disclaimer #1: I received a free copy from the publisher through goodreads (thank you!).

Disclaimer #2: I have not read the first book in this series. But you'd better believe I'm going to track down a copy now.

Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard is the most delightfully bookish middle grade book that I have ever had the fortune to read.

Sophie Quire is talented bookmender living in a town that's trying to rid itself of "nonsense" -- which happens to involve burning books. But when a mysterious and magical book lands in her hands, she has the opportunity to save the world as she knows it, and all of her beloved stories.

I mean, really, what's not to love about the plot?

And the characters just make it all the better. Sophie is a wonderful, compassionate, bookworm of a main character. She is exactly who I wanted to be as a twelve year old: that perfect blend of brave and well-read. Peter is delightful and feisty, and I'm so happy that he has his own book! And the cast of secondary characters is nothing short of marvellous. (Did I imagine for a second when I picked up this book that I would be crying over a literal root? No, but here we are.)

Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard explores the power of words, the beauty of books, and the magic that is found in both fiction and the minutiae of daily life. And in doing so, it creates a magic all its own. ( )

The Good Stuff
A deftly written fantastical epic tale for 9-12. Filled with magical creatures and eccentric characters
Full of heart and intriguing characters that never act in the way you expect them to. This my friends is a wonderous thing
Never talks down to kids - author understands that children can handle a wee bit of the dark, as long as there is a light at the end of the tunnel
Wickedly funny at times, with plenty of cheeky asides for the reader
Auxier is a master of his craft and his books should be in every childs library (and of course their mom's as well, because I was on the edge of my seat, and laughing along while reading)
Believing in ones self, the ability to change - sacrifice for what is right
Deadly battles, talking tigers - hello - what could be better than this. The language of the book reminded me of The Princess Bride on many occasions. This is a compliment - for if you do not love The Princess Bride, I fear there is no hope for you
There is something for everyone, as long as they can just believe
The importance of stories and the magic within the stories to transport you
Positively brilliant and one of my favorite opening passages of a book. A book truly for those who love books, big and small.
I'm a grown women, but I was actually bawling with tears rolling down my eyes while sitting in the back room at work (BTW, nice to know that where I work no one would think it was weird that I was crying while reading - my god I am going to miss you guys - you have truly made living here bearable - ok the mountains are purty too)
The Not So Good Stuff
My copy is an ARC so no pictures, : (
Lots of big words and dark themes may turn off readers
Favorite Quotes/Passages

"It has often been said that one should never judge a book by its cover. As any serious reader can tell you, this is terrible advice. Serious readers know the singular pleasure of handling a well-made book - the heft and texture of the case, the rasp of the spine as lit the cover, the sweet, dusty aroma of yellowed pages as they pass between your fingers. A book is more than a vessel for ideas: It is a living thing in need of love, warms, and protection. And above all, a book must be read."

"She had read many exciting stories about fugitives and runaways, and something that has always annoyed her was how little attention was paid to sensible preparations."

"Among a certain population, there is no greater way to demonstrate affection than by recommending a book." (reviewers note: there is nothing better to me in this world than getting the right book to the right reader)

"This was not how her adventure was supposed to go. People--real people that she loved- had died."
