    One thought on “Goblins in the Castle”

    1. I remember buying this book for myself in the 4th grade. I saved up to purchase it from one of those book order mini catalogs the school passed out to students back in the day. The cover just looked so cool to my 4th grade mind (it still looks cool to me now). This story was what started it all - my love of reading and literature. I still have that very same book in great condition though a bit yellowed. Every few years, I would bust it out and read it again. It's still one of my favorite storie [...]

    2. I last read this in 1996--I remember loving it at the time. As I recall, there were mysterious castles, dungeons, goblins, and lots of other semi-creepy (but not *really* scary) creatures, along with Bruce Coville's usual fun blend of action, humor, and likable characters.Re-read comments: I still loved the characters. It seems to suggest other stories in the characters' backgrounds--and I'd love to read more about Igor :-)

    3. First read: September-ish 1992(Re-read several times thereafter)Next read: 8/17/2015 - 8/26/2015

    4. Great bookI accidentally read the second book first but then I realized it and read the first I thought I knew all about it but it surprised me

    5. I don't even know how many times I've read this book, but I do remember my copy becoming quite tattered. Even when I was well past the age intended for this book, I would pick it up on rainy afternoons when there was nothing to do. I think I may have read it a few times in my late teens when I was stricken with insomnia, and looking for some comfort. The charm of this book; the cast, the writing and environments, they just never got old for me. A great read, all around.

    6. Cute story about an orphan boy living in a castle who releases goblins long held captive. He sets out on a journey to fix his mistake - but things aren't always as they seem.Doesn't have a lot of substance - doesn't quite do the 'for-adults-too' crossover - but I think it'd be a really good and fun book for kids. Has adventure, maybe a little bit of scariness, and some good lessons about friendship and honesty and whatnot.

    7. Another one of my bedside favourites as a young and growing child. This one tale starts off very much like Coville's plots, straight in MEDIAS RES. From the middle of things, the curiosity of our narrator quickly picks up as through a book he finds, he decides to continue his epic journey into the depths of the past and dungeon of the castle he occupies. I've read and re-read this book many times over the years, and will be one I share with my children in the years to come. . .

    8. William lives in a castle but has only explored part of it for the 11 years he's lived there. He has no family to keep tabs on him, so exploring is what he does, the RISK-TAKER that he is. One night he meets Igor, and it changes everything. They COOPERATE together to try and save the castle and their land from the Goblins. He has INTEGRITY when his life is on the line and he stands up for Igor. He has RESPECT for many around them.

    9. favorite kids book of all time! It's one of those books that I will read to my children one day. It's also one of those books I can read in my adulthood and be just as thrilled by the story and the characters. I really don't know how many times I read this book over the years . Big Adventure in a small little book.

    10. It's a simple read for a kid. I loved the concept alone but it doesn't really dive too deep into it. I read this(and others) while going through a Labyrinth obsession.Many years later I gave it to my kids to read and they too enjoyed it.

    11. This was my favorite book as a kid. Might even be the very first fantasy book I ever read. It actually holds up pretty well for being mid-grade fiction that was written like 20 years ago. Still a fun little adventure.

    12. My favorite part was when the goblins were happy again. My least favortie part was when Ishmael locked up the goblins in the north tower, even though they weren't that bad.

    13. This was also a read aloud book that I liked a lot and most of the characters made me laugh a lot!

    14. FIC COVWilliam lives in a castle but has only explored part of it for the 11 years he's lived there.

    15. My 4th grade teacher read this book to our class and I remember getting completely caught up in the story and the characters. It was one of the first books I read (or had read to me) that really had me on the edge of my seat. So when it got to the point in the school year when I knew there would only be time to read one more book to my 3rd grade class I wanted it to be this one. I hadn't read the book since hearing it for the first time at 10 years old, and I didn't remember much of the details [...]

    16. This was a "bathroom" book. It was a treasure picked up at one of our weekly library visits. Someone took it into the bathroom to read. Then all you would hear over the next two weeks is "where is that book that was in the bathroom?" Three children ages 12, 11 and 10 and two adults:Mom and Dad loved this book!! There is no better review than that and one of my (The Mom) favorite memories.

    17. It's a very interesting thing rediscovering a book which you had no idea had such an influence over your life. I first read this book when I bought it at a book fair in grade school. The cover and title really pulled me in, and the description both intrigued and frightened me. I remember taking a while to even start reading it because I was a little scared of it (funny to think back on that now). Once I did though, I really fell in love with it and I'm sure I finished it rather quickly. The stra [...]

Language: G (0 swears, 0 "f"); Mature Content: G; Violence: G; William was raised in a castle with lots of hallways to explore and passages with creepy sounds.

    19. This was a book my older brother enjoyed as a child and he wanted me to read when he found it again this year.As usual, it takes a little adjusting when picking up a middle grade when you're not used to it, but once I did get into it I found myself enjoying it more and more. I really wanted to know how the story was going to end, and there's even a twist I didn't expect.The characters are unique and endearing and the setting is interesting and makes the reader as curious as William about what se [...]

    20. This was a fun book that I read out loud to my newborn son (three weeks old, can't start too early, right?) It was a lot of fun to read out loud and use voices to change up the pace of the story. A good beginner book that isn't too hard to understand, but still engaging enough to keep an older reader interested. This book felt like I was reading the script to a Jim Henson movie, lots of interesting characters and zany creatures to portray, I could definitely see this being made into a muppet mov [...]

    21. So, I recall back something like twenty years ago when I was a boy, this book was one of my favorite titles. It's different than the other things that Coville writes, and I would've been just starting to define my preference for fantasy.Reading this book as an adult, I love the charm of the story. It's written from the perspective of an 11-year-old boy, and the problems (and the solutions) are appropriately childlike. The adults have shortcomings that children will relate to (not being taken ser [...]

    22. This book is a light-hearted romp with a serious message hidden underneath its tomfoolery. It’s not so easy to sort out the good guys from the bad ones and, since the hero is a small boy trying desperately to do the right thing, the chance of a misstep seems very real. However, there isn’t a sense of pulse-pounding danger here; the antagonists are far too goofy for that. Throw in a hunchback whose main source of offense is a weighty teddy bear and it’s obvious this isn’t The Lord of the [...]

    23. I read this book in Elementary School, back when I was on a total Bruce Coville kick. When I saw it the other day at the library, I picked it up, with no real recollection of anything about it except that I liked it. I brought it home, but warily, worried I wouldn't love it as much as I did way back then. But I wasn't disappointed. This book is so cute and sweet and fun. It's got all the lighthearted adventure of a story that a parent would tell their child at night. I loved the take on goblins [...]

    24. This was a fun little fantasy adventure. It's a really nice touch how much the reader is given, but how much more there seems to be left to say. Not that there are any loose ends in terms of plot, but I like how little backstory and few explanations are given to the reader. The exact history of Igor and Granny Pinchbottom for example. They are still huge mysteries by the end of the book, but it still feels complete. I wish other books, especially fantasy, were as comfortable as this one is when [...]

    25. I don't remember much about this book, except my 6th grade teacher gave it to me as a gift. Bruce had come to town for a book reading and signing, and I was bummed that I wouldn't be able to make it. The next day, my teach (Mr. Havens) surprised me with Goblins in the Castle, signed by "Igor" himself, Bruce Coville. Needless to say, Mr. H was my favorite teacher of all time. (I did get to meet Bruce Coville a couple years later - Mr. H. managed to get him to do something similar at our tiny litt [...]

    26. What would you do if you found a secret passage in your room that led down to a dungeon filled with evil marauding goblins? Goblins in the Castle is about a boy who does just that. He opens a door he shouldn't, letting out the spirits of a Goblin army. Now he needs to leave the castle and take down the goblins for good. During his adventure he meets people and asks if they will join in his great adventure to defeat the goblins. Oh, did I mention his best friend is a hunchback who whacks people w [...]

    27. This is a very quick, easy, and highly entertaining read. The characters are enjoyable, the writing style is light and fun, and there is a wonderful element of humor to it. The plot is engaging enough and the book was an overall satisfying read. I confess, I'm not generally the biggest Bruce Coville fan, but this book was a delight. There were times I laughed out loud.It's also a great read-aloud book! I read it aloud to a friend and it almost made it funnier for both of us. Kids of all ages can [...]
