FROM THE PUBLISHER
Twelve-year-old William is beginning to wonder if Jason is still his best friend. When Jason challenges William to "jump the trains," William is terrified but feels he must prove himself. The opportunity arises when his former housekeeper sends him a magic token that once again takes him back to the mystical world of Sir Simon's castle, this time with Jason. There they face a dangerous army of rats and their gigantic leader. Once, William was a hero in the castle. Now it's up to him to destroy the rats and save the kingdom in the final battle for the castle.
This is the follow-up book to "The Castle In The Attic". William returns to the castle, this time with a friend. He'll have to fight something creepy... but not alone.
Spoiler alert: Like in the previous book, William will have to fight evil not with the help of a magic token, but by his own strength and imagination (AND with the help of his friends). That's something I like about these books.
Like many sequels, it is perhaps not 100% as good as the first, but still, I like it a lot, and it's a keeper (for my sons). :-)
