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.
This confident, pitch-perfect narrative does what it sets out to do, creating a magical castle inhabited by real people who face a real crisis, and then bringing the crisis to a successful conclusion. I hope this is a standalone novel, because I believe there is nothing left to be said about Castle Glower. "Tuesdays at the Castle" joins "The Search for Delicious" and "Half Magic" in the category of classy classics for pre-teens.
Celie is a fine heroine, smart and caring and brave. She is a good character for girls to identify with, and I think boys will manage to get over any "Yuck, a princess book" qualms and enjoy her story too.
When I started to read "Tuesdays at the Castle," I worried that it would be too similar to another recent girl-in-a-changing-castle book, "Flora Segunda" by Wilce. Luckily, the books start with a similar idea but go in completely different directions. (Watch out for those old stuffed animals, though!) The Flora books are for a somewhat older group of readers, but are also excellent.
