    1. In the fifth and, as of right now, final book about Celie and Castle Glower, Celie and her family find themselves far from home as they visit the Kingdom of Grath and finish building the griffin-headed ship.May 2016: Copyedits!



    2. What a great ending to a fun series! I loved the idea of being at sea, but still being connected to the castle and I loved the new adventures and additional characters. Just like the first four books in the series, I could not put this one down! I love the Glower family, Lulath, Pogue and, of course, the furry members of the family, too. I'm sad that the series is over, but loved the way it ended.


    3. Yay! These books are so cute. A couple years ago, I presented Tuesday's at the Castle for a book talk in my college course and presented an argument on why this book would be great to recommend/keep in a classroom library for upper elementary and middle school students. That was a while ago but I remember there was never a question of which book to choose for that assignment because even then I was reading everything and anything written by Jessica Day George. I've read every book in this series [...]


    4. 3.5 stars.This was one of my favourite series when I was younger, and I was really looking forward to this last book, and then I just found I didn't care anymore which is why it's been out for almost a year, and I still hadn't read it until today.This was a really fun read. It's quick, and easy, and humorous. It tied up the series nicely, and I quite enjoyed it.It lacked the spark that makes a book amazing for me, but I think this is an amazing series for a younger kid.(This review is probably g [...]


    5. I loved this whole series. Saturdays at Sea was no different. It might even be my favorite of all of them. Although I'm sad this is the last book, it was a great ending.


    6. This magical series just keeps taking me to better and better places. With Celie growing up and now unicorns being monsters! Geez. What a great book! next please.


    7. I have now read the entire Tuesdays at the Castle series. I feel that the first book was the best and I read the rest out of loyalty to the original idea. I think the author erred in thinking that I would care so much about the history of the Castle and why the magic worked. I really wanted magical adventure and this book had very little of that. There wasn't even anything that could be considered conflict until after page 100. She simply had too many ends to tie up and I think that was probably [...]


    8. I love Castle Glower, not just the series, but the actual Castle, so I wasn't sure how I felt about a Castle Glower book without the Castle. My worries were in vain. Really, as long as I have Celie, I'm happy.I loved so much about this book. I loved that Lulath is the warrior of his family. I loved his parents and brother. I loved the dogs - oh the dogs! Most of all, I loved that Celie found her voice and got to say what we've all been thinking - quit telling her she's the Castle whisperer and t [...]


    9. A lovely conclusion to a delightful series. Great fun for junior high and middle school readers and listeners, and a pleasant experience for read-aloud parents.



    10. Adorable and so much fun, as always! At this point I feel like these characters are my family and reading the series is like coming home. Idk if I'm reading into stuff too much but I really feel like the Pogue x Celie feels ive had since the series began were seriously validated in this book, only I couldn't even enjoy it because I know the age gap would make that squicky. Would kill for a spin-off series with the characters aged up a bit! JDG managed to keep Dragon Slippers a kids series and Cr [...]


    11. Oh Lulath, how delightful to read your backward language again, and meet your charming parents and their army of little dogs! And then when you add in a magical ship and unicorns? Well, it can't help but be a very fun read. :)


    12. Grathian is still a weird language when rendered in Sleynian (by way of English). But the world building is fantastic and sometimes horrific.pussreboots/blog/2017/comm


    13. I still love this series, such a great adventure book with a princess who isn't too princessy.I truly hope Jessica Day George can find it in her heart to give us two more. And even then, I will hope the series could go on.


    14. A wonderful ending to the fantastic Castle Glower Series! This is definitely one of my most favorite in the series. All of my favorite characters were in it, with plenty of screen time for them all. The Griffins were fierce and majestic, and just tons of fun. I'm so happy Rolf finally has his griffin, and loved seeing how all the others have grown. There are plenty of new characters that are all amazing, as well as an army of dogs and a monkey. I loved Orlath and Kalys. And I would absolutely lo [...]


    15. wordnerdy/2017/02The latest book in the Tuesdays with the Castle series is also apparently the LAST, which I am hugely bummed about, because this series is SO CUTE. It is full of adorable griffins and puppies--and in this one, a magical ship AND a quest for unicorns. I really feel like this series could have gone on a little longer--or at least, I would have been eager to read more magical adventures. A-.


    16. This was a fun ending to the Castle Glower series and I really have enjoyed reading these books right after my 11 and 9 year olds read them. For whatever reason, I did not find this book quite as exciting as the earlier three, but I still liked it. I am now reading the first book to my 7 and 5 year old daughters and they seem to be loving it as much as the rest of us.


    17. So now I'm even a little more irritated at the pacing of the fourth book. I feel like there were/are so many things to explore in this "finale," and we didn't get to them all. But if the fourth book hadn't been entirely been wasted running around in secret passages, then this book could have progressed a little further. They could have gone to Grath in #4, and left time for more of the story in this one. We didn't even get to see the wedding, let alone any of the other relationships that were hi [...]


    18. I am so sad to see this series end! I think I will always hold on to some small hope that one more will be written. I love this series and these characters. I was somewhat apprehensive at the thought of having the last book written away from the Castle, but as the story progressed it didn't take away from my enjoyment to have it set mainly on the Ship. Saturdays at Sea is one of my favorites in this series. I loved all the little interactions between Celie and Pogue in this book. Maybe there cou [...]


    19. Not a bad installment, but not as good as some of the previous books. It spent a lot of time on their welcome and all the royal obligations and distinctions for the betrothal announcement, which I didn't mind, but I think it would lose readers like Pete and T. Before I felt the series could have appeal for boys, but this one felt more girlish. When the "action" started (with the Ship), I thought the port village , the Well, the Found, were all intriguing plot elements, but I wish there was more [...]


    20. Celie and most of her family have traveled to visit the home of Lilah's fiancé, and while they are there, they finish constructing the ship of which they found the pieces in the castle. But when the ship takes control on their maiden voyage, they are left at its mercy, and they are headed straight to the most dangerous place in the sea. But just like the castle, the ship has a plan, and knows things that Celie and her family do not.Another fun addition to the story. I love watching Celie grow u [...]


    21. Jessica Day George has given me yet another reason to say she is one of my favorite authors of all time. I have loved every single one of the books that I have read. All three series are on my top 10 list! This book was a very nice addition to the Tuesday's At The Castle series. It was very interesting to be out of Sleyne and Castle Glower for 99% of the book. I would defiantly suggest this book to fantasy lovers who especially love griffins and unicorns. If you enjoy this series I would also re [...]


    22. I liked this more than the fourth in the series, but still like number one most. I would have liked an epilogue with the wedding, perhaps. Celie seems far older in some respects, even when acting immaturely, than her stated age. I would like to see a story that advances her age, with a focus on her and Pogue. The castle is intriguing. Not being an animal lover, I could never muster the affection to warmly embrace all the pets, though few books make that happen (the big exceptions being the Harry [...]


    23. A fun conclusion to the Castle Glower series that I've been following from book one. I love how this series has kept fairly consistent throughout, not loosing quality as it went along.In this book, the royal family takes to the sea as they build the Ship. Which of course has a mind of its own and takes them off to find the unicorns. I thought it was fun to sea all the different cultures as they went along.There were quite a few loose ends, but is nice to not have everything tied up with a bow. I [...]


    24. *3.75I really love the Castle Glower series but I just don't see what this book was trying to accomplish. The last book didn't really end on a cliffhanger and this book didn't close off the the story completely so I just didn't understand why we have this book. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this book and love Jessica Day George's books but it just seemed pointless.(view spoiler)[Maybe I'm just bummed that Lilah was engaged to Lulath and not Pogue. Not that it had a huge affect on the stor [...]


    25. I am so sad this is the last Castle Glower book! I love the Castle (and now the Ship) and Celie and the griffins. In this final book the family is headed to Grath to meet Lulath's parents and introduce them to his betrothed Lilah. They are also taking the ship parts they found in the last book to seaside Grath to assemble since Sleynth is a landlocked country. Because the Ship is made of parts of the Castle, as well as parts from several other countries, it comes alive just like the Castle. On t [...]


    26. Read the entire series aloud with my daughter. And we had a delightful time doing that over these past couple of years. While Book One, Tuesdays at the Castle, is by far the best (and no, I don't always say that about every book series I've read) this one was enjoyable and entertaining. I've heard this is the last in the series. Which is a little disappointing b/c there are a few things that could be tied up. I guess the author has left us with enough to come to our own likely conclusions. A bri [...]


    27. The characters are all growing and changing! So many new, exciting places.Lilah wants to go searching for the unicorns, but everyone seems to think they're all dead. The Ship (a gift to Lilah and Lulath) is built, and on its maiden voyage around the harbor it takes control and sets out on a journey of its own desire perhaps an attempt to fulfill Lilah's desire?Through difficult people and dangerous places, the Glower siblings and their friends have to work together to survive their latest adven [...]


    28. So satisfying a conclusionInterestingly, this reads as a book for kids, but, really, it's a solid YA. In fact, the whole series really is. The characters are teens, and there's enough talk of marriage that it should be for teens. Still, I think it's tame enough for older kids and certainly for middle schoolers. I probably would have enjoyed it at age five! Overall, this book, and the series as a whole, are wonderful, magical diversions. And if there are ever Sunday or Monday books, I'll get them [...]
