A lavish new picture book from Caldecott-winner Sophie Blackall that will transport readers to the seaside in timeless, nautical splendor! Watch the days and seasons pass as the wind blows, the fog rolls in, and icebergs drift by. Outside, there is water all around. Inside, the daily life of a lighthouse keeper and his family unfolds as the keeper boils water for tea, lights the lamp’s wick, and writes every detail in his logbook. Step back in time and through the door of this iconic lighthouse into a cozy dollhouse-like interior with the extraordinary award-winning artist Sophie Blackall.
The illustrations in this lighthouse book are phenomenal. They amplify the story of a man who runs a lighthouse, his family, job, and life. Then one day, the coastguard comes and installs a machine and lightbulb, and the lighthouse keeper leaves with his family. This book has some fun details about lighthouses, too.
