Description

There is nothing in the whole world that Jack likes better than building sandcastles. But however strongly he builds them, he can't stop the sea from stealing them away. Then one night he is awoken by the gulls outside his window, calling him to come down to the beach. To his amazement, the sandcastle he built the day before now towers above his head. Jack marches across the drawbridge, and embarks on a magical adventure filled with jesters and musicians, feasting and dancing, a beautiful girl and a magic shell. M.P. Robertson weaves a wonderful tale of fantasy and excitement, with magical illustrations, capturing the wonder of a little boy's imaginary adventure.

Author Biography

M. P. Robertson was born in Parsons Green, London. He studied Graphic Design at Hounslow Borough College, where he discovered a love for illustrated books. After leaving Hounslow he spent a year drawing in museums, cathedrals and on the underground before specialising in illustration at Kingston Polytechnic. Among the influences on his style are Mervyn Peake, Heath Robinson and Odile Redon. He believes that more than merely decorating a book, illustration should be integral to the narrative. Among is books for Frances Lincoln are The Egg, The Great Dragon Rescue and The Dragon Snatcher; Hieronymus Betts and his Unusual Pets, Big Brave Brian, The Sandcastle and Food Chain. He lives in Bradford on Avon with his partner and two sons.
