Deskripsi

Long ago and far away . . .

There was a castle. But not just any castle. This was a castle that glittered and sparkled and rose majestically above the banks of the winding Winono River: the Castle Corona.

And in this castle lived a family. But not just any family. This was the family of King Guido: rich and royal and . . . spoiled. And King Guido was so spoiled that neither jewels nor gold nor splendid finery could please him, for what he longed for most was . . . a nap and a gown that didn't itch.

Far below this grand, glittering castle lived two peasants. But not just any peasants. These peasants, though poor and pitiful, were plucky and proud. And in possession of a stolen pouch. But not just any pouch. A pouch whose very contents had the power to unlock secrets and transform lives . . .

And oh, there is an author. But not just any author. Sharon Creech is a Newbery Medal-winning author whose tantalizing tale will not only dazzle and delight but also entertain and excite.

    A fairly classic fairy tale, but updated with active girls and plenty of humor. No magic though. I felt like a child again, so happy to be immersed in the kingdom.

    This story is of the old style in which the monarchy rules much the same as it always did and everyone's quirks drive the story line. It has mystery and adventure and leaves the reader feeling quite self-satisfied at the stoy's completion. I recommend it to any who read and loved Despereaux but wouldn't have minded the exclusion of talking animals. This is that kind of a story.

    Slight fairy tale with pleasant illustrations contains no surprises but serves as a welcome diversion on a train journey through the heartland. I can't recommend it due to its lack of interesting situations.
  • (3/5)
    Surprisingly abstract for something classified as a children/young adult book. I'm still not sure what happened at the end and I read it over a few times.

    I've only read two of Sharon Creech's books: Bloomability and Walk Two Moons. Both of those were far better than this book. I listened to it in audio format and was able to zone out and in and still follow the story. It seemed pretty predictable from the beginning and was actually kind of boring. I don't see it being the MSBA choice this year.

    "Walk Two Moons", "Chasing Redbird" and "The Wanderer" are some of my favorite Sharon Creech novels. So when I picked up "The Castle Corona", I expected to fall head over heels in love with this book. I found "The Castle Corona" to be a very slow-moving book. While the characters were well developed, save for the prince who was obsessed with fighting, the book seemed to drag on endlessly. Creech did a wonderful job of using rich, descriptive language and the book itself, is beautiful and captures the essence of an old and valuable relic. Some of the vocabulary is far too difficult for some fifth graders, and sixth graders might benefit from the lessons held within the pages.

    A very descriptive Italian fairy tale of peasants and royalty.
  • (2/5)
    A royal family, a pair of peasant siblings, and assorted hermits, wise women, storytellers, and castle staff mix and mingle in quaint and interesting ways. Although a very attractive package (wonderful art by David Diaz), I found this light fantasy a bit superficial. The tone reminded me of Odo Hirch's Bartlett and the Ice Voyage, which was a more satisfying book.

    Medieval fantasy-fun quick read.
  • (1/5)
    The illustrations are beautiful but the story is kind of stilted so it's not holding my interest.
  • (3/5)
    I think this would be a fun read aloud for a 3rd grade teacher. The dialog leaves a lot to be desired. It is predictable and somewhat contrived. The orphan kids find a pouch from the Castle Corona. They end up being official tasters of food for the king. eh. I know it is not that nice to compare all her books to Walk Two Moons-but I know what talent this woman has. It is interesting to note that the "illuminations" are by Diaz, which are quite nice.

    All the characters in The Castle Corona seem to want to be someone else. The orphans Pia and Enzio dream about being royalty, getting to ride horses and eat rich foods and have other people to do work for them. The members of the royal family all wish to be regular folks who don't have the responsibilities of the royalty. In an interesting twist of events, the orphans find themselves at the castle... and things start to change. A satisfying fairy tale with an ending I didn't see coming, I'd recommend The Castle Corona to fans of fairy tales and fantasy. The audio recording was great and narrator Jennifer Wiltsie does great voices for each character.
