Wednesdays in the Tower by Jessica Day George Blog Tour & Guest Post!



Guest Post by Jessica Day George:



 The Room You Would Wish Castle Glower Would Make For You


I am really hoping that if Castle Glower ever becomes real, it will really, really like me.  After all, I’m the one telling its stories . . . there’s got to be some kind of awesome reward for that, right?  So what I really, really want my reward from Castle Glower to be is a sort of combination library and bakery.  It would be full of books, first of all.  Some of the books would be ones that I’d read before and loved, and want to read again.  And some of the books will be new and wonderful.  My room would have plenty of comfortable sofas, big squishy chairs with matching footstools, and little tables to hold treats.  There will be plenty of lamps with glass shades, and broad windows with velvet curtains.  There would be cases of pastries, and cakes on tall glass cake pedestals, and mismatched china plates and cups.  And it would absolutely have a cocoa machine.  There would be a large balcony that looked out over Sleyne valley, and had padded benches on it and an awning to keep the sun from fading the books.  This room would be available only to me, and people that I specifically invited to join me there.  Every morning I would go down a hallway, up a flight of stairs (for the exercise) and at the top would be my room.  I would sit all day and drink cocoa and eat slices of fresh, cream-frosted chocolate cake and read!  Doesn’t that sound WONDERFUL?




Wednesdays In The Tower By Jessica Day George

A moving castle, and the children sworn to defend it...The wait is over for this highly-anticipated sequel to the award-winning hit Tuesdays at the Castle!

With over 300,000 copies of her books in print, Jessica Day George is back with WEDNESDAYS IN THE TOWER (May 2013), the continuation of her blockbuster middle grade series.
When her brother Rolf dares her to catch magical Castle Glower creating a new room, Princess Celie takes the challenge! No one knows the Castle better than she does. But as usual, the Castle has ideas of its own. Celie finds the new room first, and inside it is hidden a giant egg. Does the Castle want Celie to care for the egg and whatever creature it hatches? Celie hadn’t bargained for a pet, and caring for this one will prove to be especially tricky, once Celie and her siblings realize what else the Castle is hiding...This modern fairy tale classic—with shades of Hogwarts’s “Room of Requirement”—is sure to delight readers of all ages.
