Read full description of the books Knight's Castle:Great fun, just like the first in the series! And if you’re a fan of knights, castles, and medieval-type adventures, you might like it even better!
Like Half Magic, this is a magical adventure story featuring four kids. Like Half Magic, the kids aren’t quite in control of the magic, so it takes some funny twists and turns. And also like Half Magic, there’s character growth at the end, which adds depth to all the fun.
One thing about Edward Eager – he likes literary references. The nature of this magic is just like E. Nesbit's The Magic City – a world of toys that comes to life. Eager is completely open about that; the girls in the book are even reading The Magic City at the beginning. The other literary influences are Ivanhoe and Robin Hood. I’ve never read either one – I just knew the characters from movies – but I think I’ll put them on my to-read list now!
My boys adored this book and were literally jumping out of bed at the end, but there are enough strong female characters to give it plenty of appeal to girls, and adults who love fantasy, good writing, and good humor will love it, too. Just make sure you read Half Magic first. There’s a surprise connection, but I wouldn’t dare spoil it for you!
Read information about the authorEager was born in and grew up in Toledo, Ohio and attended Harvard University class of 1935. After graduation, he moved to New York City, where he lived for 14 years before moving to Connecticut. He married Jane Eberly in 1938 and they had a son, Fritz.
Eager was a childhood fan of L. Frank Baum's Oz series, and started writing children's books when he could not find stories he wanted to read to his own young son. In his books, Eager often acknowledges his debt to E. Nesbit, whom he thought of as the best children's author of all time.
A well-known lyricist and playwright, Eager died on October 23, 1964 in Stamford, Connecticut, at the age of fifty-three.
