2015 Rebecca Caudill Roundup: Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George

tuesdayscastleWhen the King and Queen of Glower go missing on a trip to visit their eldest son, the younger prince Rolf and princesses Lilah and Celie refuse to believe they are dead, no matter how much the royal councilors push to name Rolf as (puppet) king. Celie has always had a special relationship with The Castle, which can change and create rooms, passageways, and decor at will and is said to be the entity that truly chooses a new king. When the trio uncover a plot in which the councilors will turn over the kingdom to Glower’s sworn enemies, they must use their wits and The Castles’ whims and wisdom to win the day.

Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George was as delightful, funny, and inventive as I expected it to be. I love how richly drawn are George’s characters. I felt like I knew Celie, Rolf, and Lilah–and The Castle, of course, which is an amazing character unto itself. The bad guys are so devilishly bad that it is fun to root against them, even though you know things will turn out alright in the end. Perfect middle grade fantasy.

Caudill Fun Fact: On her website, Jessica Day George has a page about why she wrote Tuesdays at the Castle which includes the original name of Castle Glower….

Bonus: there are sequels, too 🙂
