Goblins in the Castle by Bruce Coville, Katherine Coville

Discover this “shivery treat” (Booklist), a funny, fantastical adventure from the bestselling author of My Teacher Is an Alien and the upcoming Diary of a Mad Brownie.

Toad-in-a-Cage Castle was filled with secrets. Secrets such as the hidden passages that led to every room, the long stairway that wound down to the dungeon, and the weird creature named Igor who lived there. But it was the mysterious night noises that bothered William the most—the strange moans that drifted through the halls of the castle where he was raised. He wanted to know what caused them.

Then one night, he found out…

Goblins in the Castle What is Igor? He was a regular Halloween visitor, in Bruce Coville's classroom, his twin/alter ego, beloved and welcomed by his students and finally showed up in book form. He's only one of the many mysteries in Toad-in-a-Cage Castle. Lessons learned from Goblins, “You can’t push something out as far as we were pushed and have it come back that easily.” “If you try to lock away life’s wild energy, sooner or later there will be a price to pay.” Read this, and then read Goblins on the Prowl, excellent, even for so-called grown-ups.

This is my favorite book that Bruce Coville has written. I love all of the imagery that he uses in describing the castle and all of William's adventures. I hope that he writes a sequel to this, but I don't know how he could possibly top this one.

I first read this book when I was eleven or so (I am 20 now) and have loved it ever since. I still find myself cringing at the thought of the William and his friends going through that dark cave on the ledge and it getting smaller and smaller! It's a great book for younger readers.

With suspense and adventure on every page and beutifully-created characters cleverly interwoven in an unparalleled plot, this story is truly a page turner. In addition, the ending is one that ties all loose ends created during the story, except for the developing relationship between the hero of the story, William, and his friend Fauna. Nonetheless, this book remains one among the best that I have ever read.

This was one of the first real 'horror' books I read. It kept me up all night, both out of fright, and just plain wanting to find out what happens next! I recommend this for any young fan of horror or fantasy books.

This book has lots of stoping points, This book is a highly recomended choice for teachers. But one flaw is an abrupt ending.But I think you'll have loads of fun reading this book.
