Tuesdays At the Castle (Castle Glower Series #1)
Author: Jessica Day George
Level: Upper Elementary – Middle Grade
Synopsis from GoodReads:
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.
The reason I read this book was because Brody said something along the lines of, “I found you on a cover! Its a book about a blond, freckled faced girl who likes maps!” So I looked at the book several times for almost six months (guessing here) and I finally read the book about a month ago…IT IS SO CUTE!
It’s light fluffy tale with espionage, adventure, and a little magic. (The castle is magic!) It defintley makes you want to keep reading and wishing you could stay at Castle Glower – and that the castle likes you so it makes your room nice and comfy…and lets you play in the bouncy room! Castle Glower should definitely be part of a theme park!!!
If fantasy tales with heart-warming characters, plotting villains, and happy endings is your thing – check this book out!
