The Castle Corona
by Sharon Creech
This charming tale is simple and complex at the same time; a traditional fairy-tale that tells the story from the point-of-view of the numerous characters, and keeps the reader engrossed and guessing. There is absolutely nothing offensive in this sweet story that children of all ages (and adults) will enjoy. It would also be great for reading aloud.
Creech continues to be one of my favorite authors. Her books are all unique, but equally compelling and well-written.
