Illustrated by Einat Tsarfati

I love building castles in the sand. So I built a sand castle. But not just any castle...

One day at the beach, a little girl builds a sand castle. A real castle with domes and turrets and a crocodile moat. And a sea view. Pretty soon, the royal visitors arrive. Kings and Queens, Princes and Princesses all descend on the palace to admire the sandy architecture and partake in the grand party in the Ballroom. But in the morning, the troubles begin. "There's sand in my almond strudel!" "There is sand in my suit of armour!" "There's sand in my bath!" In fact, there's sand everywhere. Is there any way to appease the royal guests? And what will happen when the tide inevitably comes in...

  • From an exciting young illustrator, a highly imaginative celebration of a day at the beach: the glory and grittiness of all that sand and the giant scale of a sandcastle builder’s ambitions.
  • Einat Tsarfati’s bold colours and detailed illustrations offer a visually compelling take on a unique day at the beach.
  • The illustrations also feature characters diverse in skin tones, shapes and sizes, as well as sand architecture in numerous international styles.
