"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 won’t go into a synopsis of the book. I’m sure that’s already been done.
I just want to say how much I enjoyed the storyline, and all of the characters.
Yes, I said all of them. Even her villains were well done.
I am off to read the next book in the series, and I highly recommend this one!
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.
Just a couple of niggling plot irks my kids questioned (hopefully spoiler-safe):
- If the castle had spit out kitchen maids it didn't like, why wouldn't it spit out the conniving folks with the nefarious plans?
- We would have liked to have seen more action with the awesome map the princess was making. It felt built up, but not used as much as it could have been.
- The title had us thinking Tuesdays would come into play in the story line more, and it really didn't.
Still, all three kids still gave it six thumbs up, we liked the action hear the end, and the resourceful princesses. Cute story!
