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 fingerhigh 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! William can’t wait to play with the castle—he’s certain there’s something magical about it. And sure enough, when he picks up the tiny silver knight, it comes alive in his hand! 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 am very passionate about teaching the importance of loving to learn! I like to instill in my students that learning never stops, no matter how old you get. And learning doesn't stop just because you are out of school... you keep the hunger for knowledge alive always, and this will help you be your best authentic self and help make the world a better place!

I have close to 45 bright students, all in need of being exposed to rich text and the importance of reading! We are a Title 1 school, and all resources are precious and greatly appreciated. Many of them do not have books or resources in their homes, so it is very important to me to be able to help open those doors for them.
