“Every Tuesday, the castle presents Celie with a new adventure by adding onto itself. Sometimes it's a new room; other times it's a tower. But no matter what it is, you can bet Celie will be there, adding to one of her maps. It's all fun and games until her parents, King and Queen Glower, are ambushed and are gone without a trace. Now it's up to Celie, her siblings, the Castle, and its love for them to protect the kingdom from outsiders. I loved how each step Celie took in the castle led to a new surprise and an exciting revelation!”
-- Clare Nelson, The Velveteen Rabbit Bookshop, Fort Atkinson, WI


Description

Tuesdays at Castle Glower are Princess Celie's favorite days. That's because on Tuesdays the castle adds a new room, a turret, or sometimes even an entire wing. No one ever knows what the castle will do next, and no one-other than Celie, that is-takes the time to map out the new additions. But when King and Queen Glower are ambushed and their fate is unknown, it's up to Celie, with her secret knowledge of the castle's never-ending twists and turns, to protect their home and save their kingdom. This delightful book from a fan- and bookseller-favorite kicks off a brand-new series sure to become a modern classic.
