Praise for Jonathan Auxier

Peter Nimble & His Fantastic Eyes
“As delightful a magical story as readers age 9-14 will hope to find. Part hero quest, part orphan saga, and wholly captivating.” – Wall Street Journal

The Night Gardener
“Creepiness, memorable characters, a worthy message make this cautionary tale one readers will not soon forget.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred)

Sophie Quire & the Last Storyguard
“This novel should be in the hands of every human young enough at heart to be enchanted by the written word.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred)


Kids’ Lit teams worldwide, we look forward to welcoming you to Canada. Here’s a peek at some of what you might see when you visit!
