4.5 out of 5 rating. 2 Reviews
A moving story of love and remembrance - for anyone who has ever lost a loved one.

Young Sarah can''t sleep following her grandpa''s funeral, so she wakes up her dad in the middle of the night. He agrees to take her where Grandpa used to take him as a boy - the lighthouse. On the way there, Sarah and her dad drink coffee and eat donuts - just as Grandpa would have liked. When they climb to the top of the lighthouse, Sarah throws a flower out to sea in her grandpa''s memory.

Inspired after a reading in Antigonish, when a little girl gave Robert Munsch a drawing of a lighthouse at night with a car driving up to it, Lighthouse is a tender story about honouring those who have passed and keeping their memory alive. Janet Wilson''s detailed and dramatic illustrations add a warm and gentle touch to a sensitive topic.
