This was a very nice book to read. It was about a young boy named William. William lived with his mom, dad, and Mrs. Phillips. William loved Mrs. Phillips and was heartbroken to know that she was going to leave. As a goodbye present, she gifted him an authentic looking wooden toy castle. The castle was beautiful and so was the silver knight that came with it. William loved the castle and he began playing with it as soon as he got it. When he started to play with it by himself, he found out that the silver knight was real! William was terrified at first but decided to find out if that was his imagination or not. Throughout the audiobook and novel, it talked about why the silver knight was there and what his mission was. The silver knight’s mission was to defeat a wizard named Alastor and take back his kingdom. William also found out about a magical token that can shrink anyone to a very small size. That gave William an idea to stop Mrs. Phillips from going. He was successful in shrinking Mrs. Phillips but was guilty because of the unhappiness he had given her. After a lot of chaos, William decided to shrink himself as well and help the silver knight defeat Alastor. After that, William joined Mrs. Phillips in the castle and in a few days, he set out to go with the silver knight. There was a lot of stuff going on after that but that is for you to read! I really liked the plot of the book and the ideas the author used. This book was very entertaining and fun to read and listen to. I would recommend this book to people who like medieval or historic fantasy. Rating- 4/5 @Vanilla of the Teen Review Board

I listened the downloadable audio for this book and I was not disappointed! It is read by a full cast which is a fun change of pace. This is a fun story about a boy who goes on a quest to save a kingdom all through the magic of a castle in his attic.
