Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
If your young readers like Going on a Bear Hunt, they'll love Into the Castle. Intrepid young explorers set out to discover whether or not a monster REALLY dwells in the nearby castle. The rhymed text builds to a not-too-scary climax, after which our explorers run home dashing by all the landmarks that they slowly passed on their way into the castle. Here's a great way to capitalize on young children's fascination with castles while also developing such concepts as sequence, prepositions, and reverse order. Besides, it's fun!
School Library Journal
PreS-K-A lyrical picture book akin to Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury's We're Going on a Bear Hunt (McElderry, 1989). Here, three brave children, a dog, and a horse go to a castle they believe has been abandoned by a monster. "On the hill is a castle-/Let's go and see./They say a monster lives inside,/But no, that couldn't be." Around the castle is a moat, across the moat a drawbridge, beyond the drawbridge a yard, across the yard a passage, etc. Yet the group finds no real signs of life until they arrive in a dark dungeon where indeed there is a monster. They run out the door, up the steps, along the passage, retracing their way to safety. Once there they hear the shouts of a friendly monster: "Thanks for letting me out!" With double-page, cartoonlike watercolor-and-pencil illustrations depicting characters dressed in medieval costumes and a rhythmic text that easily lends itself to audience participation, this story is a fine choice for a read-aloud setting.-Helen Rosenberg, Chicago Public Library, IL

    Great book!

    My toddler and our family has enjoyed this book very much. We all know it by heart and recite it at the beach, building a sand-castle and then run around, 'running from the monster'. We recite it at the local park that has play ground equipment like a castle. This book follows us many places and has been much more than we imagined. I am taking the time to write this because Into the Castle has been a very multidimensional and fun book for us all.
