Synopsis

Kings of the Castle by Victoria Turnbull

George doesn't want to spend the whole night moonbathing alone. But then the strangest creature he has ever seen comes out of the sea. At first it seems that they will never be able to understand each other, but a few lines in the sand help them speak without words. And then they realise that there are some things you don't need language for. A beautifully written and illustrated story of friendship from the critically acclaimed author and illustrator of The Sea Tiger.

Reviews

There's lots on offer in this lovely portrait of a friendship bridging difference - a splendid vision of what dreams can build, and a reminder of the riches that lie unseen in the people (and monsters) all around us * Publishers Weekly *

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
