One of the classic fantastical adventures of all time!

William has just received the best present of his life—an old, real-looking stone and wooden model of a castle, with a drawbridge, a moat, and a finger-high knight to guard the gates. It’s the mysterious castle his housekeeper has told him about, and even though William is sad she’s leaving, now the castle is his!

Sir Simon tells William a mighty story of wild sorcery, wizards, and magic. And suddenly William is off on a fantastic quest to another land and another time—where a fiery dragon and an evil wizard are waiting to do battle…

    " I had picked this up while sitting around at a friend's, and she offered to let me borrow it. It's a YA novel, and a bit stuck on believing in oneself making all things possible (not the fact that he trained hard, which seemed more relevant). But for all that it was readable. *shrug* "
