Synopsis: "Jack loves to build sandcastles, but no matter how strongly he builds them, the sea always sweeps them away. Then one night, a seagull outside his window wakes him up and calls him down to the beach. There he finds the sandcastle he built the day before — only life-sized! Jack marches across the drawbridge and embarks on a magical journey filled with jesters and musicians, feasting and dancing, a beautiful girl, and a magic shell. M. P. Robertson weaves a fun tale of fantasy and excitement with beautiful illustrations that capture the wonder of a little boy’s amazing adventure."

My Review: This book was okay for us. Munchkin loved the beach, sandcastles and the beach but was immediately bored and confused when the story took a turn for imaginative. It also scared him a little when the water takes the castle away. The illustrations were lovely though and beautifully colored.
