I really liked the art in this book. Plus, i'm a sucker for rhyming book. It's a story about three boys making believe. Very sweet.

Jack makes a castle for himself and his friends and they spend the day fighting dragons and other beasts. Then night comes and, slowly, one by one, the friends go home to bed. Jack tries to be brave and stay the night, but soon his parents come and carry him off to bed.Beautiful illustrations and rhyming text make for a lovely story.¿Jack, Zack, and Caspar were making a den---a mighty great fort for King Jack and his men¿.`Prepare to do battle, brave knights!¿ cried King Jack.`Protect your king¿s castle from dragon attack!¿¿

My 5 yr old (also named Jack) LOVES this story. Part of the love of this book is that his name is the main character's name, but the illustrations are wonderful as well. The story is a nice end of day tale, and I don't grow tired of reading it to him. He can read most of it himself as well and we both truly enjoy this book. Hats off to Peter Bentley and Helen Oxenbury for this winner!
