Describe it in 25 words or less.

Any particular reason for choosing this book?

Morgan: Action/Fantasy/Children’s Literature
Gable: Children’s Fantasy/Adventure
Who was your favorite character and why?
Morgan: This is a tough question, but it would probably be Rolf, because he added humor to the book.
Gable: Celie because she was brave and didn’t give up on saving her family and friends.
Who was your least favorite character and why?
Morgan: Wizard Arkwright, because he creeped me out.
Gable: Wizard Arkwright. You’ll know why he was my least favorite character once you read it.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? Was it worth the wait?
Morgan: Took a little while, but was definitely worth it!
Gable: I love Jessica Day George’s books because she gets right into it at the very start, at least with the Castle Glower books. She also knows how to end a chapter.
Was it plot or character driven?
Morgan: A great mix of both.
What did you think of the ending?
Morgan: It was a very unique ending, and I was sad that it had to end so soon, but there could surely be a third book.
Gable: Intense. And there will be a third book coming out this year on October 7th. It will be called Thursdays With The Crown and I can’t wait to read it!
What was the moral of the story?
Morgan: To do what your heart tells you.
Gable: Never give up on saving the ones you love, even if it’s hard.
Did you learn anything?
Morgan: How to take care of a griffin.
Morgan: “The clues are all around us, we just didn’t see them.” –King Glower
Gable: “That’s amazing. Not as amazing as that. But still amazing.” – Rolf Glower
Have you read other books in the series?
Morgan: I have read “Tuesdays in The Castle,” which is the first book in the series, and I LOVED it!
Gable: Yes but this one was totally better. Check out my review of Tuesdays At The Castle.
Who would you recommend it to?
Morgan: Those who like only a little bit of fantasy and lots of action in their books.
Gable: People who were not satisfied with the first book, people who are interested in griffins and people who like the idea of owning a pony.
