Description


Meet Sandcastle.

Sandcastle’s world was new and exciting until their very first...

SQUISH!

In an effort to protect themselves from ever getting squished again, Sandcastle tries to be bigger and taller and stronger! But is that enough to stop all the squishes?

From Breanna Carzoo, the acclaimed creator of Lou and Greenlight, comes an uplifting picture book story that reminds us that while we can’t stop all of life’s squishes, we can reach out to others, reconnect with our ingrained resilience, and maybe even have some fun!

Praise For…


"After it is stomped by one of its kid creators, the indignities keep piling up for this picture book’s googly-eyed sandcastle protagonist... Alongside a familiar message of solidarity and resilience, visual storytelling from Carzoo (Greenlight)—single-plane images rendered in subtly dimensional cut-paper collage—has lots of good-hearted, goofy verve." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Buckets of sandy uplift" — Kirkus Reviews
