“The Castle in the Attic” by Elizabeth Winthrop

Well, I finished reading my first e-book for the year just now. This is an excellent book for children, I would probably say from about 7 till about 12. It depends on the reading ability of the child. If you are a fan of the “Indian of the Cupbard” book or you like medieval fiction, this would be something you should read with your children.

Synopsis: Ten-year-old William receives a wooden model of a medieval castle as a gift. It has everything he could possibly want, right down to a miniature drawbridge, a portcullis and a silver knight. In this enthralling story that weaves the everyday problems of growing up with magic and fantasy, the castle introduces William to an adventure involving magic, a ferocious dragon, a wicked wizard, and his own personal quest, where courage will finally triumph over fear.
