A story of moonbathing, sandcastle building, and a seemingly impossible friendship.

George didn’t want to waste the night moonbathing. He wanted to build a sandcastle that would turn any monster green eyed with envy. But when George meets the strangest creature he has ever seen, the night takes an unexpected turn. A starlight story of adventure and imagination from the creator of The Sea Tiger.
