Kings of the Castle

Kings of the Castle

By Victoria Turnbull 
Published by Templar Publishing

Prepare yourself for a sweet, sweet story about friendship, team work and adventure from the creator that brought us The Sea Tiger.

George didn’t want to waste the night moonbathing. He wanted to build a sandcastle that would turn any monster green eyed with envy. His pet Boris is no help and only wants to fetch sticks. George is just about defeated, but when he meets the strangest creature he has ever seen, the night takes an unexpected turn and an impossible friendship makes his dreams become possible. 

Just like her debut, The Sea Tiger, Victoria has come up trumps with a beautifully imagined story, along with her whimsical illustrations. I especially loved the gatefold centre which reveals a castle of ginormous proportions - a sand castle that's definitely fit for a king. 

At the heart of the story is a beautiful message about friendship and not letting things like language get in the way. Nothing in this world is impossible, with there always being a solution to every problem. By working together George and Nepo create the most amazing castle which cements their friendship forever. Children are sure to love this imaginative tale - especially George's pet, Boris. Another great night time tale from Victoria that is sure to become a modern classic.

Kings of the Castle is available to buy now from all good bookshops and from the Templar publishing website here.
