Description-
  • As William turns twelve, we wonder if Jason is still his best friend.  In the past year Jason has grown a foot taller while William is still a shrimp.  When Jason challenges William to "jump the trains," William is terrified.  How else can he prove himself to Jason.  William has the chance when his former housekeeper sends him a magic token that once again takes him back to Sir Simon's castle in the Middle Ages, this time with Jason.  There they face a dangerous army of rats and their gigantic leader.  Once William was a hero in the castle.  Now its up to him to destroy the rats and save the kingdom in the final battle for the castle.


    From the Trade Paperback edition.
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine In a lavish, full-cast production, Winthrop's sequel to The Castle in the Attic springs to life for young listeners. At 12, short-statured William receives the magic token that allows him to once again shrink and enter the world of Sir Simon's castle in the attic. This time, his best friend, nasally voiced Jason, accompanies him, and William is afforded an opportunity to prove his mettle in a world other than his own. The delightful Words Take Wing cast, including author Bruce Coville reading three parts, and Winthrop herself as narrator, creates a world sure to entice and satisfy the many fantasy fans who have sprung up in the wake of the Harry Potter craze.
