Waiting on Wednesday: A Tale of Two Castles by Gail Carson Levine

A Tale of Two Castles by Gail Carson Levine (Published by HarperCollins, May 10, 2011)

Mysteries abound, especially in Two Castles.
A handsome cat trainer, black-and-white cats, thieves on four legs and two, suspicious townsfolk, a greedy king, a giddy princess, a shape-shifting ogre, a brilliant dragon. Which is the villainous whited sepulcher?
Elodie journeys to the town of Two Castles to become a mansioner—an actress—but luck is against her. She is saved from starvation by the dragon Meenore, who sends her on a dangerous mission inside the ogre's castle. There, disguised as a kitchen maid at an ogre's feast, she finds herself cast in the role of a lifetime and pitted against a foe intent on murder.
Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine weaves an entrancing tale of a fearsome ogre, a dragon detective, and a remarkable heroine, who finds friendship where she least expects it, learns that there are many ways to mansion, and discovers that goodness and evil come in all shapes and sizes.

I have enjoyed Gail Carson Levine's fantasy novels for years so I am glad to see she has a new book being published soon.

This one sounds fun. And I love the old school fairy tale cover.

I had this as a WoW pick a while ago - love the cover! I adore Gail Carson Levine's book Ella Enchanted, so I'm looking forward to this one for sure :)
