These detailed spreads charting the course of a year in a fantasy medieval castle are packed to the brim with charming characters and hilarious adventures that young readers will return to again and again. There’s a lot going on in the castle of King Bolebor-a peace- loving gardener-and Queen Drogomira-a brilliant inventor. There’s a princess learning sword fighting so that she can become a knight; a sweet dog in search of an owner; a dragon hiding in the cellar; a gold-counting treasurer; a friendly ghost; an annoying jester, a burly blacksmith-and many others. Vibrant and intricately detailed spreads take readers through a year in the castle, showing how an innocent mishap leads to war with the neighbors; how lives in the castle change from month to month; and how each season brings its own surprises. Gently humorous and filled with opportunities to play I Spy, this delightful picture book also provides ample opportunities to talk about all sorts of topics from history and gender stereotypes to gnomes, ghosts and chess-playing frogs.
