Book Overview

A classic tale of fantasy, adventure, and bravery in a beautiful anniversary edition--perfect for fans and new readers alike

When his beloved caretaker Mrs. Phillips tells him she's leaving, William is devastated. Not even her farewell gift of a model Medieval castle helps him feel better--though he has to admit it's fascinating. From the working drawbridge and portcullis to the fully-furnished rooms, it's perfect in every detail. It almost seems magical.

And when William looks at the silver knight, the tiny figure comes to life in his hand--and tells him a tale of a wicked sorcerer, a vicious dragon, and a kingdom in need of a hero. Hoping the castle's magic will help him find a way to make his friend stay, William embarks on a daring quest with Sir Simon, the Silver Knight--but he will have to face his own doubts and regrets if he's going to succeed.

A reader favorite for 35 years, this redesigned anniversary edition includes an author's note from Elizabeth Winthrop, reflecting on the novel and its legacy.

William's story continues in The Battle for the Castle, available as a redesigned companion edition.

   A fast and enjoyable read
After several attempts at fantasy novels, each of which left me uneasy, it was a relief to find this. From beginning to end, you feel the goodness surround you. There is enough in the world to create fear, so I don 't need books to remind me of it. This book is a perfect blend... a little evil, but everything else is so full of love that there is no upset feeling. Bravo! litkidz. com - Laura
   it's a cool story - for this purpose
Read this and did Lit groups with my 4th grade class. The goal was to identify elements of a quest story and look at the author's craft. On it's own, it is a cool story for this purpose, not so much for a few reasons. William is kind of selfish and it is his own dishonorable act, which he must fix. The actual quest takes forever to start and is only about 3 or 4 chapters long. Depending on how you interpret it, there are either 3 coins or 2 coins and one of them has two sides. For children, confusing. I enjoyed the book as an adult, but it was sometimes inconsistent. Overall, though, I liked it.
   Loved this book as a child
As a child, Love Loved This Book. As a mother, I can now enjoy it doubly when reading it with my five-year-old. She reads at a 3rd grade level and loves this book just as much as I did!
   Love, love. Loved it
It is a great story of the coming of age and finding courage within each of us. I continue to read to my children and reread it again.
