A story for anyone who likes to spend a day at the beach, and for everyone who has ever pondered the big questions about our place in the universe.

Rae and Grandad set out to build a sandcastle.
They make a tall tower.
They raise great ramparts.
They dig a deep moat.
They even find a dragon.
But will it be enough to hold the tide?

Sandcastle is a beautiful exploration of the ebb and flow of life.

Philip Bunting

Philip grew up just around the corner from Mr McGregor's garden, a mile or so down the valley from Mrs Tiggywinkle's place, and only a short row from Owl Island.

A childhood spent growing up in the English Lake District means that children's literature is in his blood. Philip now lives in Queensland, Australia with his family, and their rescue cat, Mowgli.

He loves anthropomorphism and drinks way too much Yorkshire Tea. Philip's first picture book, Mopoke, was published in 2017.

  • Wonderful, moving, beautiful

    I picked up Sandcastle because of the beautiful cover, but I was so surprised and pleased to be able to find a picture book with such depth. The concept is about how we're all made from atoms that have been around since the universe began (and how our atoms will go on to become other things), delivered through the metaphor of a sandcastle, with awe-inspiring delicacy.

    Keep an eye on the crab! And the grandpa towards the end of the book.

    This is a must-read for parents and kids.
