Product description

Review

"Unconstrainedly escapist. Thompson is a one-off, a wit, a virtuoso. His collection of imaginary "castles" is a surreal treat" (Kate Kellaway Observer)

"It will afford hours of absorbing puzzlement in trying to decipher the wicked jokes hidden in the unbelievably detailed pictures" (Sonia Benster The Bookseller)

"Colin Thompson has created illustrations that are truly extraordinary. So take a journey into your imagination and have a look at this castle celebration" (Through the Looking Glass)

"One to produce when the batteries die and gizmos crash . . . Maddeningly taunting, this will give hours of quiet searching" (Mary Arrigan The Sunday Tribune)

"Unbelieveably detailed pictures of imaginary castles will keep loyal reader entertained for hours" (Sunday Express)

Synopsis

In this fantastical world, there are castles in space, floating castles, castles in the sky and castles made of glass. Each one hides a royal family and there are all the usual mazes, puzzles tricks and messages waiting to be discovered. Colin Thompson's wonderfully detailed artwork reaches new heights of ingenuity and invention in this brilliant new book.
