Book Pet Peeves #15: Chapter Samplers

Thumbing Through Throwbacks: Castle in the Attic + Battle for the Castle

Let’s be honest, who didn’t like knights and castles as a kid? It was something I have never grown out of and part of that may have to do with this duology. I was in the 4th grade when out teacher started reading the first one to us. I was having none of this “one […]
