Illuminated by. Above the Castle Corona one summer day, a string of clouds, like the wings of downy white doves, whisked across a pale blue sky, gently but purposefully sailing toward some distant oasis. Prince Gianni was kneeling on a red velvet cushion, his elbows resting on the cool stone sill, his chin in his hands.

The Castle Corona book. Creech sets the stage well enough: there is a castle, with a royal family of five useless, discontent, and rather stupid individuals. In a nearby village there are a poor, orphaned brother and sister. Long ago and far away. There was a castle  . And there are a couple of hermits.

The Castle Corona" is a beautifully produced book, with lovely page decorations. That is the best thing I can say about it. I think that Sharon Creech (who has written some terrific modern fiction for young adolescents) was trying her hand at the modern fairy-tale genre that Kate DiCamillo understands so well. Because I like reading fantasy, and I think this is the only fantasy she's ever written. The book is illuminated by David Diaz.

This was a castle that glittered and sparkled and rose majestically above the banks of the winding Winono River: the Castle Corona. Sharon Creech is a Newbery Medal-winning author whose tantalizing tale will not only dazzle and delight but also entertain and excite. And in this castle lived a family. But not just any family. This was the family of King Guido: rich and royal and. And King Guido was so spoiled that neither jewels nor gold nor splendid finery could please him, for what he longed for most was. a nap and a gown that didn't itch.

But not just any castle. Books related to The Castle Corona.

Long ago and far away . . .

There was a castle. But not just any castle. This was the grand and glittering Castle Corona.

And in this castle lived a family. But not just any family. This was the family of King Guido: rich and royal and . . . spoiled. And King Guido was so spoiled that no finery could please him, for what he longed for most was . . . a nap and a gown that didn't itch.

Far below this grand castle in the dense woods lived two peasants. But not just any peasants. These peasants, though poor and pitiful, were plucky and proud. And in possession of a stolen pouch. But not just any pouch. A pouch whose very contents had the power to unlock secrets and transform lives . . .

"The Castle Corona" is a beautifully produced book, with lovely page decorations. That is the best thing I can say about it. I think that Sharon Creech (who has written some terrific modern fiction for young adolescents) was trying her hand at the modern fairy-tale genre that Kate DiCamillo understands so well. But unlike "The Tale of Despereau" or "The Magician's Elephant," this story is flaccid, choppy, and repetitive, with lots of loose ends. The characters, though distinct, are very poorly developed. Little attempts at social satire, like candles in the murky narration, sparkle, waver, and then go out. The faux-Italian setting should be charming, but it's never developed aside from the names of the characters.

This book could have been improved by a strong-willed editor, but Creech is an award-winner, so I suspect there was little editing involved.

That being said, there is nothing so terrible about "The CastIe Corona" that should prevent any library from buying it, or any 3rd-grade classroom from including it. As a read-aloud, it would occupy two or three weeks of before-dismissal time. Spreading out the content like that might make the book seem more suspenseful and less choppy.

I think "The Castle Corona" would make a decent animated film, or possibly a live-action film in which the characters are cartoonish. Maybe good acting could bring life to these characters. Disney should buy it.

Disclosure: I read this book right after "The Tale of Despereau" and Gaiman's "Stardust," both of which do this genre right. In such company, "The Castle Corona" seems especially weak.
The Castle Corona, also by Sharon Creech, is an excellent fantasy MG novel. It's the story of a castle, with "a king who longed for a nap, and queen who yearned for solitude, and a prince who loved poetry, and a princess who loved herself, and a spare prince who loved his sword, and a hermit who was wise." It's also the story of a village and "a peasant girl who dreamed of flying, and a peasant boy who dreamed of horses, and a master who dreamed of turnips, and an old woman who kept secrets." Something valuable and mysterious is stolen from the castle, and falls into the hands of Pia and Enzio, the peasant girl and boy. They must figure out why it is so important and what to do with it. Meanwhile, in the castle, the royals are working on that same question, as well as others, such as "What is all this loveliness for?" (the princess asks this one).

The story is about much more than that. It's about becoming a better person, and about change, and about finding out who you really are. The writing meanders from this to that, in Sharon Creech's very distinctive and simple style. She often says what each character is dreaming about, and in doing so, revealing something important about them, or what they've experienced that day.

But besides that, The Castle Corona is simply entertaining, a story of two poor orphans who are good people, and some spoiled royals who become better people as the book progresses. Sharon Creech brings this world to light, and despite its easiness, The Castle Corona is probably one of my favorite Sharon Creech novels. Because I like reading fantasy, and I think this is the only fantasy she's ever written.

The book is illuminated by David Diaz. Not illustrated, illuminated. The pictures do look like something out of an illuminated manuscript. They're quite beautiful, and fit the medieval-like setting of the story very well. They depict the characters, the setting, and the events.

I really love how you can see the changing perspectives of Prince Gianni, Princess Fabrizia, and Prince Vito. They start like Pia and Enzio when they come to the castle, despite the fact that they are peasants. The princes and the princess actually learn from them.
