The Very Last Castle
Words by Travis Jonker, Pictures by Mark Pett
In the middle of an unremarkable small town stands the very last castle. No one ever comes out, and the townspeople have never been inside. Rumors abound as to what might be inside. Only young Ibb seeks to find out the truth.
Visually, Ibb is portrayed in eclectic modern princess attire. Her actions speak as someone who takes all viewpoints into account and then seeks to learn her own truth. As a result, our heroine rescues the knight in shining armor and gives a lasting gift to the townspeople.
This book is exceptionally well structured and written. The art and words mesh seamlessly. The first time we read it, my little one said, “Now that is a good story.”
