THE BATTLE FOR THE CASTLE

A Sequel to THE CASTLE IN THE ATTIC

When William turns twelve, he wonders if Jason is still his best friend. In the past year, Jason has grown a foot while William is still a shrimp. When Jason challenges William to “jump the trains,” William is terrified. How else can he prove himself to Jason?

William has the chance when Mrs. Phillips sends him the magic token that can once again transport him back to Sir Simon’s castle in the Middle ages, this time with Jason. There they must face a dangerous army of rats and their gigantic leader.

Once William was a hero in the castle. Now it’s up to him to destroy the rats and save the kingdom in the final battle for the castle.

“Likable characters, swashbuckling heroics and goofy culture clashes…charms aplenty.” -Publishers Weekly

  1. Will there be a sequel to Battle for the Castle? A third book in the series perhaps?

    Thank you very much for this wonderful story. My boys 12 and 9 both loved the adventures of William.
