This is a really fun fantasy-adventure novel for children. This story features William, a young orphan boy who lives in a mysterious castle full of secrets and a cast of quirky and unusual characters that he meets during his adventures. For children who aren't quite ready for Harry Potter, this easy to read fantasy may be just right. Fun Fact: William is gifted a mysterious "invisibility cloak" to assist him on his quest, several years before Harry was gifted an invisibility cloak in the first Harry Potter book! This book is a little bit scary, but not too much. There are some good, unexpected plot twists and turns. As a popular and prolific author for children, Bruce Coville has mastered writing fun, appealing books that children can just enjoy.

I read this book as a kid and loved it. I'm now reading it to a class of first and second graders and they are enjoying it, even the teachers in the class are laughing and getting caught up in it. Suspenseful but not scary, the kids beg me too read more.
