You known what I DON’T like? Answering THIS QUESTION!!!

– Peter


Dear Peter: When did you change your silver hand from a hook to the sword that it is when you meet Sophie Quire? – Samantha, USA

You are a very observant reader! I can only assume you are some master swordsmith from a distant land. To answer your question: at some point, I realized it would make a better weapon if the pointy end was turned *away* from me, and so I had it changed.

– Peter

Do I detect a hint of jealousy?

– Peter


Dear Peter: When did you first become interested in writing books? – Kayla and Sydney, WI

I have no interest in writing books. Mr. Auxier, however, has loved telling stories since he was a child. He’s a bit like Sir Tode that way!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you think your parents are nice? Do you want to meet them? – Akira, WI

I would give everything I had to see my parents just once.

– Peter


Dear Peter: Why would the thieve go on a journey if he already found a treasure? – Treyton, WI

The journey is the best part–the treasure is just an excuse to set out!

– Peter


Dear Peter: How many friends do you have? – Randallen, WI

I now have plenty of friends. But that still doesn’t stop me from feeling lonely some days.

– Peter


Dear Peter: Did you ever want to say something mean to Mr. Seamus? – Mikayla, WI

I think about seeing Mr Seamus again and try to imagine what I’d say or do. Sir Tode tries to remind me that there’s no point in sinking to his level. He always says, “Seamus has to live with himself … and that’s punishment enough.” That might be true, but I’d still like to give him a piece of my mind!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you only have one hand? – Caleb, Rwanda

I still have two hands … only one of them is forged from the blade of a giant’s fish hook. It’s not as good for picking locks, but it does great in a sword fight!

– Peter


Dear Peter: How old is Peg? – Caleb, Rwanda

Not old enough to boss me around!

– Peter


Dear Peter: What is your favorite food? – John, USA

The best food I’ve ever eaten was on Professor Cake’s island. Just thinking about bog toast and pickle hearts makes my mouth water!

– Peter


Dear Peter: What did each pair of eyes do? – Leroy, Canada

You’ll have to read the book to find out!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Did you ever in your life have a friend? Cailyn, WI
I didn’t until I met Sir Tode.
– Peter

Sir Tode always says that adventures are never fun when you’re in the middle of them. But having been on an adventure feels fantastic!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you think Mr.Cake is going to make Sophie and you are going to have to work together in more trips? – Sophia, TX

Professor Cake sent us off on more adventures–including one bigger than the rest combined! Someday, maybe I’ll tell you about it …

– Peter


Dear Peter: Would you date Sophie? – Gracie, MI

NEXT QUESTION

– Peter


Dear Peter: If you had the choice would you want to meet your REAL parents or never meet them at all? – Emery, TX

Some days I feel like I would give anything just to see them one time. But then I remember that if I hadn’t grown up without them, I wouldn’t be the person I am today!

– Peter


Dear Peter: If you had the choice would you want your eyes back? – Kelani, Canada

That’s a complicated question–my blindness feels like a part of who I am. The only person I’ve ever really talked about it to was Sophie Quire.

– Peter


Dear Peter: How did you know which eyes to put in first? What if you put in the emerald eyes? – Alice, TX

I just had a *feeling* that the gold pair were the ones to try. If I had put the emerald eyes in first, I never would have made it to Professor Cake’s island!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Do you miss your right hand? Or does it affect your thievery or life in general in any sort of way? – Isabelle, ON

My Silver Hand is bad for thievery but GREAT for sword fights! I’d say it’s an even trade.

– Peter


Are you dating anyone?(Sophie Quire) – Joe, MN

Next question!

– Peter


Dear Peter: Are you going to go on another adventure after you rescued Sophie Quire? – Bill, PA
While I’d love to sit back and relax, Professor Cake has different plans in mind!
– Peter

Dear Peter: Did you ever find out that Sir Tode was just a shepard? – Adelaide, MA

He did tell me about that. I told him that who he was in the past does not control who he can become.

At first I thought HazelPort was enormous, but once I spent more time there, it began to feel too small.

– Peter


Dear Peter: What was the scariest part of your trip with Sir Tode? – Brennan, MI

The scariest part was thinking I’d left Sir Tode behind in the Just Deserts.

– Peter
