Peasant children Pia and Enzio often dream about life in the beautiful Castle Corona. The members of the royal family of Castle Corona often dream about living lives of meaning. When thievery and intrigue break out in the court, all of these lives become entangled. Newbery Medalist Sharon Creech (Walk Two Moons ) spins an imaginative tale about a glittering castle and the royal —and very spoiled — family who lives there, and of two peasants who are in possession of a stolen pouch that has the power to unlock secrets and transform lives.
