Max’s Castle by Kate Banks, illustrated by Boris Kulikov. When Max finds a box of forgotten blocks and toys under his bed, his brothers ask what’s so special about that. Max tells them “I’m going to make a castle.” He begins with the walls, and pretty soon the castle has many walls. His brothers Karl and Benjamin soon decide that they would like a room too. Then, as they build, they rediscover old favorite toys inside each room, and adventures begin to happen. With the help of the letter blocks, they turn each addition of the castle, and its contents, into what they want; words like BATTLE into BABBLE, and SWORD into WORDS. This is a sequel to the books Max’s Words and Max’s Dragon, where unscrambling word adventures, and colorful full page drawings, add to the fantastical story, and the joy of discovering again your favorite things.
