Summary

A magical castle with a life of its own, and a plucky princess who will defend it at all costs….

Tuesday is Princess Celie's favourite day. Castle Glower magically grows a new room, a turret or sometimes an entire wing! No one quite knows how. When the king and queen disappear, a secret passageway appears. The Castle is definitely trying to tell her something. But it's down to Celie to find her parents, hold on to the kingdom and protect her home before it's too late.

Critic reviews

"A satisfying mix of Hogwarts and Howl's Moving Castle… Adventure stories fans will enjoy this as much as children who wear their wizard cloaks proudly" ( School Library Journal)

Gripping and brilliantly performed

I bought this audio book for my 8 and 6 year old children after one of them had borrowed a later book in the series from the library and we had all listened to it in the car on the way to our summer holiday.

My kids love these stories but they are good listening for the whole family. Well thought through interesting story line, drama and suspense without being overly frightening or descriptive and satisfying resolutions, if you, like us, like happy endings.

I finished listening to this book doing jobs one evening long after the children had gone to bed. As a book I imagine I wouldn’t have put it down.

Shame the books have such awful and childish pink covers, or I would buy them for my son to read himself!

Nice listening

Great performance and storytelling, this book is worth a movie. I’m willing to start the next one in the series.

Ok for small children who like castles and magic

A world of magic and wizards but they are all somewhere else.
Since the magic part of the world did not really effect the story I am not sure why it was there
