Celie is 11-years-old and the youngest princess in Castle Glower. And everybody knows the Castle loves her best. When the Castle is bored, which it usually is on Tuesdays since that is the day King Glower the 79th hears petitions, it opens up a new set of rooms. And one of Celie's favorite habits is to explore the Castle, mapping out the new rooms and finding it's secret passageways.
When Celie's eldest brother graduates from Wizard College, the king and queen leave Castle Glower to attend his graduation. When their carriage is attacked by bandits on the way back, everyone believes the worst but Celie, Rolf (the crown prince) and Lilah (Celie's very proper older sister) know they can't have been killed since the Castle hasn't changed anything about the king and queen's rooms. When foreign dignitaries arrive to "mourn" the passing of the king and queen, the royal children know that at least one of them is eyeing their kingdom in the hopes of taking over. The interlopers thought it'd be easy; what they failed to take into account was Castle Glower itself which helps the three royal children "play pranks" on those that would take what doesn't belong to them.
Some of the pranks are delightfully mischievous and would definitely appeal to the pre-teen reader. And some of Celie's escapades are quite daring. It has a very good pace to the plot and was never boring, even to me, and I am way outside the targeted audience range.
I absolutely loved this story. It was perfectly paced as it moved from introduction to political intrigue to danger and more. The story was both fun and serious. I couldn't put the book down because I had to know what happened next.
I loved the Castle. The kingdom knows that it is really the Castle who rules the land by deciding who is fit and who isn't. Those the Castle deems unworthy find their rooms shrinking and moving farther and farther away from the Throne Room, not to mention other mischief. Those the Castle favors find their rooms comfortable and convenient to find.
Princess Celie may be young, but she was a great character and easy to love and understand. Even though I'm in my 30's, I enjoyed reading about this young girl and her adventures. I laughed over the plots Celie and her siblings put into action and smiled over the way they cared for each other.
TUESDAYS AT THE CASTLE was a fast and easy read. The chapters are rather short making it easy to read just one a night with your child. This was such a fun story that I can't wait to read it again only this time with my kids.
