A castle that is constantly rearranging itself, and a young royal family sworn to protect it. Celie, Rolf, and their beloved Castle Glower are back in this exciting sequel to Tuesdays at the Castle.

When her brother Rolf dares her to catch magical Castle Glower creating a new room, Princess Celie takes the challenge. No one knows the Castle better than she does. But as usual, the Castle has ideas of its own. Celie finds the new room first, and inside it is hidden a giant egg. It looks like the Castle wants Celie to care for the egg and whatever creature it hatches, but Celie hadn't bargained for a pet. And caring for this one will prove to be especially tricky once Celie and her siblings realize what else the Castle is hiding . . .

Jessica Day George's magical series is a classic in the making--and not to be missed.

Review quote

"A sweet, funny, sincere story in which siblings work together." --"Kirkus Reviews," on "Wednesdays in the Tower"

"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 Reviews," on "Tuesdays at the Castle"

"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," on "Tuesdays at the Castle"

"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." --"School Library Journal," on "Tuesdays at the Castle"

"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." --"BCCB," on "Tuesdays at the Castle"
