"Tuesdays at the Castle" was a delightful tale about a living castle with a discerning mind. It was a little scary for a children's book, but so is "Coraline." The characters are courageous and loyal. It was so refreshing. ( )

My son liked this story, I found it weirdly violent and dark for something with such a cheery cover and tagline about this wacky castle. Reading this made me have to define "seige" and "traitor" for my 2nd grader. He loved the end and that the kids are so independent. ( )

This is perhaps my favorite JDG novel. While she inevitably leaves you asking WHY way too many times- for instance WHY is Lulath on Celie's side? WHY is everything perfect and tied up so nicely at the end? WHY does there need to be a sequel since it IS all nicely wrapped up?- the idea was good. Her characters lack depth but this wasn't as bad as her fairy tale stuff. ( )

A light and fun read for the younger end of the YA spectrum. When the king and queen go missing, presumed dead, the remaining prince and princesses must deal with those that come to take advantage of them and the situation. The youngest, princess Celie, is the heroine of the story and has a special connection to the magical Castle Glower, which becomes a major asset in their effort to protect themselves and their kingdom. I was a little disappointed in the ending, much of which happens off page, and the way the conflict wraps up so quickly and neatly at the end but overall I really enjoyed this book.

I don't read Middle Grade books often because they often feel like they are explicitly aimed at an audience without much vocabulary. (I think this qualifies as a Middle Grade?) This book, however, didn't give me that impression, and was an entirely enjoyable book to read as an adult despite its target audience being much younger than me. Two thumbs up! ( )

Introduction: Tuesdays at the Castle, written by Jessica Day George, is about Princess Celie and her siblings’ quest to uncover the truth about the mysterious disappearance of their royal parents. Published by Bloomsbury Children’s Books, ISBN 978-1-59990-917-2, the book appeals to those interested in fairy tales, castles, and princesses.

Character: Celie is a brave, eleven year old Princess who trusts and loves Castle Glower. Every Tuesday the castle changes, adding a new room or staircase or secret passageway. When Celie’s parents go missing and castle Glower is ambushed, Celie must save it. Here is an example of how much Celie loves the Castle; “Lilah said, will the Castle keep on showing us?” “Of course it will,” Celie said fondly. She patted the floor at her side. “Won’t you, my darling?” Celie was now thoroughly convinced that the Castle wasn’t just magic, but a living thing, and furthermore that it was firmly on their side. She thought she felt a quivering beneath her hand, as though the Castle were purring” (p.98).

Theme/Plot: The theme seems to be family. The author shows this throughout most of the book. Each of the characters have a specific place within the story and work together to achieve a common goal. Tuesdays at the Castle has a main conflict which gets resolved in the end.

Author: Jessica Day George has written other books like Thursdays with the Crown and Dragon Spear. She wrote Tuesdays at the Castle for her editor, Melanie, whom she says asked her for years to write something funny for young readers.

Summary: Castle Glower isn’t an ordinary castle. On Tuesdays it adds a new room, staircase, or passageway. When the King and Queen go missing, Princess Celie must use her secret knowledge of the castle to protect their kingdom.

A satisfying mix of Hogwarts and Howl's Moving Castle, Castle Glower helps its true citizens, but never at the expense of plot or character development.

These kids are clever, as is George's lively adventure.
