Industry Reviews

'Hums with life and the joys and tribulations of a large family ... The story itself is told in lilting text which reads so well aloud, and the accompanying illustrations are colourful and joyous. I loved this book without reservation' - Readings

'Painted with the featherlight touch that distinguishes Caldecott Medallist Blackall's work, this graceful account of a lighthouse keeper's life celebrates a lost era ... A jewel of a creation and a gift to those who dream of retreat' - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
