About this title


A young boy builds an unusual sand castle on the beach.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 When a young boy builds a monumental sand castle, he becomes Sir Christopher, Tamer of Dragons and Conqueror of the Black Knights. Standing on the battlements he stares down the dragon and meets the warriors from the sea. Just before the rising waves inundate the castle, he is snatched to safety by a tow-headed boy, who is himself, playing with a sand castle on the beach. Meticulously drawn full-page pointillistic illustrations in black ink on rich cream-colored paper employ unusual perspectives to show the boy, the castle, dragons and knights, and the intruding waves. The book begs comparison in terms of the blending of fantasy and reality with the work of Chris Van Allsburg. Nolan's book is a charming evocation of a child's world of make-believe, best shared by an adult, remembering, and a child, imagining. Shirley Wilton, Ocean County College, Toms River, N.J.
