"This enjoyable romp turns mischief into political action and a stone palace into a cunning character. . . . These kids are clever, as is George's adventure. May pique castle envy." ―Kirkus
"This story puts an unexpected spin on the typical princess tale. Readers will root equally for crafty Celie and for her castle, a truly unique and memorable 'pet.'" ―Library Media Connection
"Castle Glower is the true star of this charming story of court intrigue and magic. 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. . . . Adventure stories fans will enjoy this as much as children who wear their wizard cloaks proudly." ―SLJ
"There is a warmth here that is utterly irresistible, both in Celie as the plucky, resourceful protagonist . . . and the maternal, protective nature of her guardian castle. Furthermore, Celie's devotion to her older brother and sister is appealing, and it's refreshing to see siblings who get along despite their differing personalities." ―BCCB--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I would find this book to be a decent discussion book with a child and maybe worth a read, but I doubt I will read any further books in the Castle Glower series.
Plotwise, there were a few things that I wondered about, such as why some people acted the way they did, but this didn't bother me much. Mostly I just enjoyed the story for what it was, a fun, exciting story about a living castle and it's inhabitants. There was plenty of excitement and humor and I highly recommend this one.
