Kings of the Castle

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.

‘With echoes of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are, this also has a message about kindness to refugees.’
Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

‘An accomplished celebration of play, imagination and friendship.’
Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
