Below is a Reader Review from a Hollywood story analyst who has evaluated over 6000 screenplays for numerous major motion picture studios:
"If thou hast knights and castles in thy blood, sally forth at once and get
thyself a copy of Joseph Svec III's TOY CASTLES, then retire unto thy coziest
keep and make ready to enjoy a wondrous good read. Here there be a treasury of
toy castle knowledge gathered by an expert who has traveled the world in search
of crenelated plastic battlements. Old favorites are covered thoroughly but the
real pleasure is in the obscure variants and international oddities that Joseph
has traced down with a true fan's affection. The text is supported by abundant
photos documenting not only toy castles but also their associated boxes,
knights, ladies, siege machines, and even dragons. It's the book all of us
castle nuts have been waiting for!"
