Castle Glower has been acting weird, so it's no surprise when two towers transport Celie and her siblings to an unknown land. When they realize that no one from home is coming to get them, the kids–along with Celie's pet griffin Rufus–set out through the forest to figure out where they are and what's happened to their beloved Castle. Instead, they discover two wizards and an entire lost people, the oldest inhabitants of Castle Glower. And it seems they may know more of the Castle's secrets than Celie. But do they know how to get her back home?
This bestselling series continues with the story of the origin of Castle Glower. Readers who've been enchanted by the Castle's moving walls will be delighted by the Castle's rich and magical history.
Why I Wrote It
Because I’m not that mean! WEDNESDAYS IN THE TOWER left off with Celie, Rolf, Lilah, Lulath, Pogue, and Rufus all stuck in a strange land in a broken-down tower . . . I really wasn’t ever planning on leaving them there! I had gotten about halfway through WEDNESDAYS when I realized that I couldn’t do all the things I wanted to do in just one book, so I broke it in two at the most exciting part! (All right, maybe that was a little mean . . . )
A new character is introduced in this book by the name of Ethan, a boy around Rolf’s age. Those of you who read the Acknowledgements at the end of my books may have seen the name Ethan there as well, because Ethan is our next door neighbor and has babysat my kids for countless hours. And now he’s immortalized in literature!
