Tuesdays at the Castle
Jessica Day George
Genre: Chapter Book
Summary (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.
Review: I like this book because Celie has so many adventures and always seems to be having so much fun. The castle that she lives in, Castle Glower, seems very interesting because it adds a new room or switches things around every Tuesday. One time it added a room with a bouncy floor; it would be really fun to have a bouncy room in your own house! While having her adventures, Celie figures out that one of the princes visiting the castle is a bad guy and she has to stop him. I like Celie because she is adventurous and usually cheerful, and because she is brave and smart. I would recommend this book to girls who like adventure. But it has dragons and griffins in it, so I think Noah would like it, too. There are two more books in the series that are really good, too: Wednesdays at the Tower and Thursdays with the Crown.
