Publisher's Summary

Long ago and far away...

There was a castle. But not just any castle. This was a castle that glittered and sparkled and rose majestically above the banks of the winding Winono River: the Castle Corona.

And in this castle lived a family. But not just any family. This was the family of King Guido - rich and royal and...spoiled. And King Guido was so spoiled that neither jewels nor gold nor splendid finery could please him, for what he longed for most was...a nap and a gown that didn't itch.

Far below this grand, glittering castle lived two peasants. But not just any peasants. These peasants, though poor and pitiful, were plucky and proud, and in possession of a stolen pouch. But not just any pouch. A pouch whose very contents had the power to unlock secrets and transform lives.

And oh, there is an author. But not just any author. Sharon Creech is a Newbery Medal-winning author whose tantalizing tale will not only dazzle and delight but also entertain and excite.

    "This story makes long car rides a breeze"

    Sharon Creech's tale managed to keep 3 kids (ages 5, 8, 9) and one adult totally enraptured. The narrator did an amazing job of keeping the large cast of characters distinct, and the story is suspenseful without being scary. There is truly something for everyone - a touch of chaste romance, silly humor, action and suspense. Highly recommended!

    "Sharon Creech weaves an enchanting story"

    Sharon Creech has created a truly old-fashioned fairy tale with The Castle Corona. In it we learn of the orphan peasants Pia and Enzio and how their lives become interwoven with those of royalty. An old genre has been brought back to life. You will not be able to stop listening to this book!

    "Something a little different to read"
    If you could sum up The Castle Corona in three words, what would they be?

    Fairy tale theme.


    Would you recommend The Castle Corona to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. This is really a children's book and written as such.


    What about Jennifer Wiltsie’s performance did you like?

    A pleasant voice that speaks well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I started to get bored if I listened to long.


    Any additional comments?

    A nice book for kids that like fairy tale style stories. An average read.
