Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George - The Literary Phoenix
What a well done middle grade novel. A lot of middle grade novels feel a bit overly ridiculous for no reason, throwing any sensible storyline to the wind, preferring ridiculous humor to s a sensible plot. Tuesdays at the Castle maintains a more-or-less clever storyline, but doesn't sacrifice the troublesome wink of humor so common in middle grade. In Tuesdays at the Castle we have three main characters and a variety of friends and villains.
