A castle that is constantly rearranging itself, and a young royal family sworn to protect it . . . Celie, Rolf, and their beloved Castle Glower are back in this exciting sequel.
Strange things are afoot in Castle Glower: new
rooms, corridors, and even stables keep arriving, even when they aren't
needed. Celie's brother Bran, the new Royal Wizard, has his hands full
cataloguing an entire storeroom full of exotic and highly dangerous
weapons, while Celie has her hands full . . . raising the creature that
hatches from a giant egg she finds! Will they be able to find out
what's making the Castle behave this way in time?
An absolutely delightful sequel to Tuesdays at the Castle. I felt I knew
the characters better this time, and I was more familiar with the
castle's quirks, which made the story easier for me to follow. I bought
two copies for the junior high school library and had a half dozen
students read it before the library closed for the school year. All of
them loved the book as much as I did.
This series would be an excellent addition to literature circles or read aloud to the class for grades 1 through 7, or I highly recommend the book as a welcomed gift for wither boys or girls in the same age range.
The book opened in the New York Times Bestseller list. Bravo, Jessica!
Only one thing to
note, I'm not looking forward to waiting an entire year before I know
what happens on Thursday!
