Join Sophie Topfeather and Timley Mouse on a Holy Land quest in Sophie’s Quest, a novel for kids ages 7-11. With Sophie and Timley, you’ll hear about the first Christmas from a Bethlehem sheep dog—a dog whose ancestors were with the shepherds when the angels shared the startling good news of baby Jesus’ birth! Keep reading for a chance to win a free copy in the 12 Days of Christmas Books Giveaway.
The quest begins after an owl, Sophie Topfeather, finds a cross necklace in the Park. Her “wise” grandfather calls it a letter ‘t’ for ‘trouble,’ but she flies on board a ship bound for the Holy Land so she can find out what the cross means for herself. What she doesn’t realize is that a spunky mouse has crawled into her hat and is now with her on board the ship!
Thorns and thistles! This mouse thinks he can help her on her quest! Can she ever become friends with something she’s always known as just a “tasty snack?” Can Sophie and Timley learn to trust each other and together discover the mystery of the cross? And what about all the trouble they can’t seem to avoid?!
This is a perfect book to read as a family or to read with an after-school or church book club. People of every age report that they learn a lot! The sequel, Sophie Topfeather, Superstar! continues Sophie and Timley’s unusual friendship as they explore the difficulties of bringing a divided community together.
There are discussion questions and activities at the back of the book and book club curriculum to download for free. Please see the Sophie’s Quest Book Club tab above for more information. You can also purchase Sophie’s Quest here
