Princess and the Castle

 
By Caroline Binch

A moving story about a little girl who has to confront her fears and cope with loss and change in her family.

Genevieve loves to play at being a princess, and she longs to visit the castle across the bay. But ever since the day her dad was lost at sea, she’s afraid to go near the water.

Then along comes Mum’s new friend Cedric. Maybe Princess Genevieve will be able to go to her castle after all.

REVIEWS

 

"The illustrations are just superb - each one is a miniature work of art, expressive and full of emotion. The subject matter, of loss and of rebuilding a family unit, is skilfully told and the book has an overwhelmingly positive message."

Parents in Touch

____________________________

"Binch's illustrations carry the sensory appeal of life.... Figures appear caressed by the light that polishes cheekbones and limbs; sunshine crystallises the sand and glitters on the sea."

Times Educational Supplement

____________________________

"The illustrations in this simply stunning book are so emotive that the accompanying words are barely needed... this heart-wrenching tale is a must-buy."
