Izzy and her friends decide to spend the night in the local supposedly haunted castle to prove it really isn't haunted. Izzy takes her grandmother's spell book just in case they need to cast out any evil demons. Deciphering her grandmother's spell book and putting the spell into action help the group become friends forever.
Adventure in Malasorte Castle is a fun read and will keep the young reader turning the pages. The prologue set the mood of the book and provided a great hook. The theme of making friends is one that readers this age will connect with. I also loved the building of relationships between a grandmother and her grandchild. With a touch of demons and magic spells, Julia E. Clements stirs up a story that the young reader will enjoy.
Izzy's parents are going through a hard time and she worries about whether they will divorce. This issue is one that many young readers face today and the hope provided for them in the story - that things will be okay in the end - is a great bond for them. I recommend Adventure in Malasorte Castle for middle grade readers and, as an adult, even I enjoyed it! - Reviewed By Gail Kamer for Readers' Favorite

This is a wonderfully written story which keeps the reader on the edge of his/her seat! Not only is the story gripping and appropriate for kids (not too scary or gory; no bad words), but kids will be able to relate with the nervousness of making new friends, the stress of having someone not like them, the wonderful feeling of bonding with new friends and the sadness of leaving friends behind. I love that this book promotes friendship and teamwork. I also appreciate the grandmother/granddaughter dynamic of the story, which illustrates how important family is. This story also touches upon parental discord and divorce and I’ll bet lots of kids will be able to relate to Izzy’s feelings about this as well.
Julia E. Clements crafts a highly imaginative, page-turning read in “Adventure in Malasorte Castle” as she blends reality with just the right amounts of fantasy, adventure, horror, suspense, and foreshadowing to come up with THE perfect children’s story. Immensely creative and populated by fantastic, magical creatures, “Adventure in Malasorte Castle” is a wonderful children’s tale that the kiddies will want to read—or have read to them—over and over again.
Izzy is a charming, witty, adventurous, and tireless main character, drawing readers into her world with many of the same issues kids deal with in today’s world, particularly the impending separation of parents, peer pressure, and... well, growing up. At twelve-years-old, she is a character most children will relate to. She is stuck between childhood and puberty, acting much as an adult would in certain situations while very much maintaining her bond to her childhood in others. Placed in a situation where she is in unfamiliar surroundings—in a foreign country with only her Grandmother and new friends to help guide her through the challenges of her young life, Izzy’s fantastic adventure reflects her fears about her current home situation yet points her in the right direction for her future.
“Adventure in Malasorte Castle” is one fairytale that should be on everyone’s gift-giving list. Clements pens a charming, intuitive, and adventurous children’s story that parents can actually discuss with their kids. It teaches valuable lessons about responsibility, family, friendship, and growing up.
I highly recommend this chapter book for ages 6 and up. Of course, parents may need to assist younger children in this age range with their reading, but serving up this tale to a single child or multiples at story time will be well worth it.
