Book Review!

Today we have decided to share with you one of our favorite books entitled A Tale of Two Castles by Gail Carson Levine. It is about a twelve-year-old girl named Elodie, who sails to a  land called Two Castles to become an apprentice to a mansioner. There she meets a lovable ogre who goes by the title of Count Jonty Um, the mysterious Mastress Meenore or “It”, a king who has very bad table manners, and his daughter a giddy princess. Once Elodie arrives at Two Castles she quickly learns that you have to pay to be an apprentice. Now broke and starving, she must find a way to survive in this new land. That’s when she meets Mastress Meenore, It offers her the position of Dragon’s assistant. Elodie is suddenly thrust into the adventure of a lifetime, when she is hired out to Count Jonty Um to discover who is trying to murder the Ogre. There are multiple suspects involved, perhaps it is the dashing Master Thiel, the fat old king, Master Dess the animal physician, or Goodwife Celeste. Or maybe even the dragon Itself. Each has a reason for wanting the count dead, but who did it? This book is an exciting mystery, that takes place in Medieval times. It is appropriate for all ages, and is a timeless classic. We would give it 5 stars. ~Savy and Ally
