Synopsis

On a rocky island in the middle of the sea, Eva's Grandad is the keeper of the lighthouse. When storms brew and the mist descends, the lighthouse offers a beacon of hope to sailors trying to find their way home.



Why were lighthouses first created? How does the light travel so far? What happens when a storm hits? Join Eva and her Grandad and discover all about the inner workings of a lighthouse, what a lighthouse keeper does all day and thrilling stories of daring sea rescues.



Did you know that you can see the light from a lighthouse nearly 30km away? Readers will learn about cloud formations, stars in the night sky and the wildlife that surrounds the lighthouse. There is always lots to do and see as a lighthouse keeper.



With beautiful illustrations and a charming narrative, A Lighthouse Story is an engaging story that introduces you to the fascinating world of a lighthouse keeper.
