Mitch and Titch aren't always looking for adventure, but somehow it finds them. Like when they were kidnapped by the king to be ingredients in pixie stew. Or when the crabs thought the brothers stole the queen's crown. Or when the dollhouse they were sleeping in was dumped in the landfill! Working together and with their animal friends, Mitch and Titch find their way home!
Although these are each individual, unrelated stories, the book reminded me of The Borrowers. Each story has a happy ending, leaving readers ready for tomorrow's adventure. As a one-off each night, it would make for enjoyable reading at bedtime.
That said, I struggle with recommending The King of the Castle. This is an illustrated "chapter" book, which is usually aimed at 2nd to 4th grade. The stories fit that audience, but the reading level is practically middle school. Additionally, the illustrations are not well placed, and some depict events/activities described on a previous page.
Readers who like The Borrowers and similar fantasy adventures will enjoy spending time with brothers Fitch and Titch.
These are the short-story adventures of two brothers.
