By far, Tuesday is protagonist Princess Celie’s favorite day of the week. Every Tuesday, Castle Glower takes on a life of its own, creating rooms, towers, staircases, tunnels, sometimes even full wings! There is no way of knowing what Castle Glower will do next, even Princess Celie, who knows that Castle better than anyone else and attempts to map it.
But one day, King and Queen Glower are attacked. Now it is up to Princess Celie, Princess Delilah, and Prince Rolf to protect their home and defend their kingdom against wicked “council” members.
Along the way, the young hero and heroines face many challenges and though it is very difficult they are determined to save their beloved kingdom.
Thoughts (for after you’re done reading, contains spoilers)
I really enjoyed this book. At first I thought that Prince Lulath was trying to trick the kids, but I turns out he had good intentions.
My favorite part was when Celie and Lilah are able to climb down the ladder. They were so brave! However, I also thought the ending was very exciting. Again, Celie was very brave. Her dive in the water was incredible! I wonder what will hatch out of the egg? Well, I was wondering what would hatch out of the egg, but the cover of Wednesdays in the Tower completely spoiled it. Well, I’m pretty sure you get to know in the first chapter.
