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.

    The Corona Castle is a pretty good book, it was a fantasy book so I’m not used to reading this type of genre, but it was very good. I will summarize this book for you, it may contain spoilers. A long time ago in a place in Italy called the Castle Corona. Pia and Enzio are servants for Master. Well the king is finding a pouch that a thief took. I made a connection to the book it was text to self, I once lost something. I rate this book 4 stars, because of the ending.
