The Storm by Cynthia Rylant -- ADVISABLE

Rylant, Cynthia The Storm (Lighthouse Family #1), illustrated by Preston McDaniels. Simon & Schuster, 2002. $15.99.

Pandora has resigned herself to a lonely life of tending to a lighthouse. After all, a lighthouse once saved her in a terrible storm, and now she wants to show her appreciation by doing the same for others. But her melancholy solitude is upended when a storm brings her a friend. And then, finally, a family.

With its gentle storytelling, lovely illustrations, and hopeful ending, this one has the feel of a classic children's book. I look forward to seeing where the series goes from here.
