The Castle Corona, by Sharon Creech


Four stars, read in September 2011.

Everything about this book is lovely. It’s nothing earth-shattering, just an enjoyable read; I love the illustration on the cover and the size and shape of the book itself, which is what led me to pick it up in the first place. The illustrations inside are just as beautiful, the characters are silly and fun, and the story—though not based on the most original framework—is done simply and well. It doesn’t end quite as predictably as you’d think, either, and that makes it a little more interesting to me. My first thought was that I want to give it to my nieces, and I think many adults would enjoy it as well.
