medal to shrink Mrs. Phillips, his beloved nanny, down to the

his attic to live in a magical toy castle.

to not only help Sir Simon defeat Alastor but to retrieve the
second half of the Janus medal so that Mrs. Phillip can return
to her normal size. Will William be able to defeat the evil
wizard Alastor, help Sir Simon, and return Mrs. Phillips to her
normal self? Read The Castle in the Attic by Elizabeth
Winthrop to see if William is successful in his quest.
