A strange legend attaches to the model castle given to William by his friend Mrs Phillips as her going-away present. William is drawn into the legend when the silver knight who guards the castle somes to life. In an action-filled fantasy quest he has to pit his wits against an evil sorcerer and a fire-breathing dragon to free an other-world kingdom from its ancient spell. An enthralling story of magic and adventure which weaves the everyday problems of growing up into the age-old battle beween good and evil.

I originally read the Castle in the Attic as a child and remembered liking it, but I couldn?t remember much about the actual story. So, I reread it the other day and had the pleasure of rediscovering it.
The story centers around a boy named William who receives a very special toy castle, complete with a knight that comes alive! Now, William must enter the world of the knight in order to undo a wrong he committed. But William will have to travel some dangerous paths and outsmart an evil wizard if he wants to get home again and make things right.
The combination of adventure, magic, and the story of an ordinary boy makes this tale appealing to many readers. Children may also be able to relate to William as he deals with his insecurities and finds courage he didn?t know he had. What an all-around wonderful story! I would recommend this book for children in grades 4-6 and especially for those who enjoyed books like the Indian in the Cupboard and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
