I liked it a lot! It's charmingly imagined, and the characters draw you in. ( )

A light and fun read for the younger end of the YA spectrum. When the king and queen go missing, presumed dead, the remaining prince and princesses must deal with those that come to take advantage of them and the situation. The youngest, princess Celie, is the heroine of the story and has a special connection to the magical Castle Glower, which becomes a major asset in their effort to protect themselves and their kingdom. I was a little disappointed in the ending, much of which happens off page, and the way the conflict wraps up so quickly and neatly at the end but overall I really enjoyed this book.

I don't read Middle Grade books often because they often feel like they are explicitly aimed at an audience without much vocabulary. (I think this qualifies as a Middle Grade?) This book, however, didn't give me that impression, and was an entirely enjoyable book to read as an adult despite its target audience being much younger than me. Two thumbs up! ( )

What a well done middle grade novel. 🙂

A lot of middle grade novels feel a bit overly ridiculous for no reason, throwing any sensible storyline to the wind, preferring ridiculous humor to s a sensible plot. Tuesdays at the Castle maintains a more-or-less clever storyline, but doesn’t sacrifice the troublesome wink of humor so common in middle grade.

In Tuesdays at the Castle we have three main characters and a variety of friends and villains. The characters do lack a bit of depth, becoming more and more shallows the more minor their role. Even Princess Cecelia if not very well fleshed out, and we know very little about her other than she loves the Castle, once slept with a stuffed lion, and that she’s brave and clever. Again, this is the way most middle grade novels work, but I think I would have liked a bit more about Celie at least.

There’s not a lot of explanation about how magic works in this world – although there is a bit of speculation. The Castle’s peculiarities are often shrugged off. The wizards are not very present, so the reader is left to accept that magic is just how this world works and so there. Which is okay, I guess. It didn’t feel too objectionable, but something worth mentioning – the story went quickly enough that I hardly noticed except in retrospect.

Story-wise, it is a fun little tale. I would have liked to see more new rooms created by the Castle. It was easily the most interesting while things were going well for the Castle. It was a great deal of fun watching Celie, Lila, Rolf, Pogue, and Lulath play tricks on the villains to hamper and frustrate them, and the little twist in the middle was unexpected for me. Tuesdays at the Castle is a book that even its intended audience would be able to read in a single sitting.

Reminding my of books like Ella Enchanted or The Two Princesses of Bamarre, Tuesdays at the Castle is a perfectly delightful middle grade read. It can still be enjoyable for older readers, but it is best intended for a middle grade audience. It’s a story I would have loved when I was younger, and even though I am technically too old for it now, I appreciate it and would easily recommend it to middle grade readers. Loads of fun! ( )

Castle Glower has always decided who the next reigning king will be. It simply moves the future king’s room next to the throne room. That’s because Castle Glower has a life and magic all its own. If it likes you, it might make your room more comfortable or move you to a desirable location in the castle. If it doesn't like you, then it may make your furniture smaller or it could order the doors in your room to disappear. Any number of things could happen! That's why Princess Celie has been spending so much time mapping the ever changing palace. So many people get lost because things are constantly shifting, luckily the castle always helps her get where she's going. Everyone agrees that the castle likes her best. Celie’s father, King Glower the seventy-ninth, has been king for a while, and his son, Rolf, is next in line to the thrown (thanks to the castle moving his room). When her oldest brother graduates from wizarding school her parents leave to attend, and everything changes. After they are believed to be dead, Rolf must take over his position as the new king, but many other people want this position as well. Who will the castle choose? Can the two main king contenders who come to the castle be trusted? What will happen when a spell is cast? You must read this exciting adventure to find out what happens!

I have wanted to read Tuesday's at the Castle by Jessica Day George since I first saw the cover. It looked enchanting, and I was intrigued to find out what the story was about. I loved the idea of rooms that change and grow in a castle that was full of surprises. The main character, Princess Celie, is so kind and clever that I felt like I knew her. She would be such fun to be friends with! Celie’s love for the castle came through and made me want to explore the passageways with her. The atlas she's creating sounds like a lot of work, but it's also a smart idea. The story was full of magic, suspense, and characters that kept me reading on to find out what would happen next. I'd recommend this book to kids in grades third and up who love fantasy and who imagine a world where anything is possible. This is my first book by this author, but I look forward to reading more of her books. I'll definitely be reading the next story in the series. ( )

Introduction: Tuesdays at the Castle, written by Jessica Day George, is about Princess Celie and her siblings’ quest to uncover the truth about the mysterious disappearance of their royal parents. Published by Bloomsbury Children’s Books, ISBN 978-1-59990-917-2, the book appeals to those interested in fairy tales, castles, and princesses.

Character: Celie is a brave, eleven year old Princess who trusts and loves Castle Glower. Every Tuesday the castle changes, adding a new room or staircase or secret passageway. When Celie’s parents go missing and castle Glower is ambushed, Celie must save it. Here is an example of how much Celie loves the Castle; “Lilah said, will the Castle keep on showing us?” “Of course it will,” Celie said fondly. She patted the floor at her side. “Won’t you, my darling?” Celie was now thoroughly convinced that the Castle wasn’t just magic, but a living thing, and furthermore that it was firmly on their side. She thought she felt a quivering beneath her hand, as though the Castle were purring” (p.98).

Theme/Plot: The theme seems to be family. The author shows this throughout most of the book. Each of the characters have a specific place within the story and work together to achieve a common goal. Tuesdays at the Castle has a main conflict which gets resolved in the end.

Author: Jessica Day George has written other books like Thursdays with the Crown and Dragon Spear. She wrote Tuesdays at the Castle for her editor, Melanie, whom she says asked her for years to write something funny for young readers.

Summary: Castle Glower isn’t an ordinary castle. On Tuesdays it adds a new room, staircase, or passageway. When the King and Queen go missing, Princess Celie must use her secret knowledge of the castle to protect their kingdom.

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.

These kids are clever, as is George's lively adventure.
