Tuesdays at Castle Glower are Princess Celie's favorite days. That's because on Tuesdays the castle adds a new room, a turret, or sometimes even an entire wing. No one ever knows what the castle will do next, and no one-other than Celie, that is-takes the time to map out the new additions. But when King and Queen Glower are ambushed and their fate is unknown, it's up to Celie, with her secret knowledge of the castle's never-ending twists and turns, to protect their home and save their kingdom. This delightful book from a fan- and bookseller-favorite kicks off a brand-new series sure to become a modern classic.
Hooray! I love it when kids need to save the day. In this case, the King and Queen are ambushed and presumed dead. Their kids work to keep the crown from falling in to the wrong hands. Get this -- the Castle is magic. It's a character in the book! It changes and moves rooms around and helps the kids when they need it. Whenever I got interrupted from reading this story, I got annoyed because I really wanted to see what happened! I enjoyed all of the action and can't wait for the sequel!
