Tuesdays at the Castle (Paperback)

Publication Date: February 21, 2017
See where it all began with the start to Jessica Day George's bestselling series about a castle that can rebuild itself and the children who defend it.
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.

Praise For Tuesdays at the Castle…
"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
