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.
