No child taken to Lost Castle has ever returned.
Barley and Rye are brothers. They live in a village on the edge of a forest. In the forest there is a band of brigands. These brigands steal things from the village. Sometimes they steal children...
When Barley's older brother, Rye, is stolen and taken to the mysterious Lost Castle, Barley sets out to do the impossible and bring him home.
Join brave Barley and his clever brother Rye as they take on the brigands of Lost Castle and the dangerous Dragon of the Deep with the help of a magic sword, a friendly selkie boy, and the thirteenth bravest knight in the kingdom (the dragon already ate the twelve bravest knights). Their loyalty and friendship must be stronger than the highest castle walls and the lure of all the treasures of the deep if they're ever to find their way home again.
A perfect book for young readers, Barley & Rye is a story of courage, selflessness, and helping your brother even when he's annoying. Fans of the How to Train Your Dragon series and the Half Upon a Time trilogy will love the tricky magical creatures, silliness, and fun of these heartwarming adventures.
Read Barley and Rye's The Adventure of Lost Castle for fantastical fun that will keep you turning the pages to the very end!
