Random House, 2008. ISBN 9781741662306
(Ages 7+) The second in the series of stories about Roland Wright, will not disappoint, as the boy has now made it to Twofold Castle, where he is to be a page, one of the many servants of  King John. His father and brother, Shelley along with their friend, Sir Gallawood accompany him to the castle, and leave him in the care of the constable of the castle, from whom he will learn some of his duties. He quickly learns to curb his impatient tongue and taken to his room, finds that the page does not have a comfortable bed in his own room that he was expecting. But more disappointments are in store.
A funny look at a boy's growing confidence in an unusual place, Roland Wright will hold the interest of readers in middle primary school as he learns to find his way around the castle, the bullies and the other pages.
