The Abandoned Lighthouse by Albert Lamb- ADVISABLE

Lamb, Albert.  McPhail, David.  The Abandoned Lighthouse, 32  pgs.  Roaring Brook Press, 2011.  $15.99.  Inside cover: “What better way to  bring an adventure than with a sunny afternoon, a beach, and a boat? A boy, a bear, and a little dog find their way to an abandoned lighthouse where (after a good dinner of fresh-caught fish) they save a ship from running aground on the rocks.  And who better than David McPhail to bring a salty childhood fantasy to life? He and Albert Lamb have spun a captivating daydream tale, flavored with summer sunshine and the taste of sea air.” I really liked this book.  The pictures were great.  The words were easy to read.  There was adventure and friendship.  It is a good book for all kids. Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ADVISABLE.  Student Reviewed:  JL- age 8.
