Thursdays with the Crownby Jessica Day George
Castle Glower has been acting weird, so it’s no surprise when two towers transport Celie and her siblings to an unknown land. When they realize that no one from home is coming to get them, the kids – along with Celie’s pet griffin Rufus – set out through the forest to figure out where they are and what’s happened to their beloved Castle. Instead, they discover two wizards and an entire lost people, the oldest inhabitants of Castle Glower. And it seems they may know more of the Castle’s secrets than Celie. But do they know how to get her back home?
This bestselling series continues with the story of the origin of Castle Glower. Readers who’ve been enchanted by the Castle’s moving walls will be delighted by the Castle’s rich and magical history.

Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians
Miranda rated it ★★★★ and said, “Thanks to Netgalley.com and the publisher for access to this title. This is a great follow up to Wednesdays and the horribly frustrating cliffhanger ending we were left with. This wraps it all together and brings the story to a great stopping point. I’m hoping for a book 4 and a great new adventure for the sisters. There has to be some use for those griffins.”
Bekka rated it ★★★ and said, “Thanks to Netgalley and Bloomsbury Children’s USA publishing for early access to this title. 3 1/2 stars—This was a great follow up to the previous installment in this series. However, I would have liked to have some reference back to that previous book, just to remind me of the pertinent points. These two books read together pretty much make up one whole book – its almost as if the author wrote a long book, and then broke it in half, publishing each as its own book. That being said, this is still a fun story that would appeal to a lot of kids, and grown-ups too! The griffons are great, the castle is great and I liked the problems that were solved. I hope there will be more in this series!”
