Product Description

A magical fairy tale by picture book legend Nick Sharratt. A cat, a king and a lifelong friendship! When the king’s castle burns down in an Unfortunate Incident with a dragon, the king and his cat need a new home. So they choose 37 Castle Close: nice, cosy and reassuringly normal. (It might even be round the corner from your house.) Here, the cat shows the king all sorts of new things, from washing-up to shopping. Who knew that being plain old ordinary could be so much fun? But – uh-oh! That pesky fire-breathing dragon is back! Is he going to destroy everything again...?

  • The first fabulous full-length novel from Nick Sharratt
  • Writer and artist Nick is already a picture book superstar
  • The story of a gentle, unworldly king and his clever cat
  • Lavish two-colour artwork in Nick’s irresistible style

Nick Sharratt needs little introduction with books going down a storm time and time again. He has written and illustrated many books for children, and also enjoys great success illustrating books for Jacqueline Wilson and Jeremy Strong.

He was born in 1962 and trained at the St Martin’s School of Art. Inspired by 1960s pop and graphic art, his work is instantly recognisable for its bold images and punchy colours. With lots of moving tabs, flaps to lift and other interactive features, as well as exciting wordplay and cheeky humour, Nick’s books let children discover all the different ways in which books and words can work.

He lives and works in Brighton, in a studio overlooking the sea.
