Roundtable Reviews features little more than book reviews and book news. We don't just stick to one genre. We have varying tastes and may be after a heartwarming romance one day, a new adult novel the next, and a creepy horror the day after that. Our book reviews always take one thought into consideration -- Would I pay the asking price for this book?

This latest Maisy book
includes a medieval castle that folds out of the back of the book and
some play pieces that feature all the characters dressed up in palace
There is a minimal
narrative in Maisy's Castle that precedes the pop-out castle and the publisher did
include two pockets to store the play figures but, although a pretty
decent size when open, young children will find that this castle is a
bit difficult to play with.
And if the child isn’t
careful, the castle will be all but impossible to fold back into the
book. You just might wish to set it up, lock the walls in place, and
leave it folded out.
Our family loves the Maisy
series, but this one didn’t do it for us. It has also been receiving
very mixed reviews, so check it out before making a purchase!
