Publisher's Summary

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.

Excellent

As a mom, I appreciated that this story wasn't one of those "my parents are idiots and cause all my problems" kind of tales. That seems to be relatively uncommon these days, so a positive parental involvement is a plus when I'm looking for books for my daughter. The plot line was fun and kept moving, and I found reasons to love each of the main characters in turn. The castle functions as a bit of a god character, which is an interesting twist and a fun talking point. Overall well written, though the performance wasn't one of my favorites. Worth the buy, though, especially if you are looking for clean writing for your kids or yourself.

The Castle was Cool

I liked the characters and I liked the Castle. The castle changing rooms on it's own and deciding who was to become the King was a hook for me. The story itself seemed a bit blasé and filled with too much court politics. I was expecting more imagination by the author.

loved it

I loved this book because it was a great family book but if you wanted to listen to it by yourself. I feel it best to listen to it on a road trip. If you want to you can buy all the other book also.

Love the story, hate the narrator

I really enjoyed the story - I feel it gives a fresh, clean aspect to YA fantasy. It's a novel concept, not overused, but new and interesting and quickly sucks you into the world of Castle Glower. 5 stars for the story!

On the other hand, I do not like the narrator. Her reading pace is far too slow for my taste, with exceptionally long pauses, but just fast enough that if you try to speed it up to 1.25 speed, it's so fast you can't catch everything she's saying. She has great expression though, which is why I'm giving her 3 stars.

Excellent for kids and adults

This book captured my 11 year-old daughter's imagination. She does not like to read, but she could not wait to listen to this book each time we were driving. I listened ahead because the book was so good.
