Product Description

From the Author

BIRDIE's LIGHTHOUSE won a PARENTS CHOICE SILVER HONOR AWARD
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to live in a lighthouse on a remote and rocky island? BIRDIE's LIGHTHOUSE is about a girl who does just that. The story is written in diary form. I love the way Kim Root's illustrations seem to bring Birdie's life on Turtle Island to life! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format:Hardcover
This lovely picture book, whose tall thin shape reflects its subject, is the fictional journal of a lighthouse keeper's daughter in 1855, Birdie's tenth year. Hopkinson, author of the highly acclaimed SWEET CLARA AND THE FREEDOM QUILT, returns with evocative prose that captures the roar of the sea, the lonely isolation of lighthouse life, and the terror and exhaustion of managaing the lights alone in a fierce storm. Root's brooding pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations reflect era, setting, and emotion. An author's note reveals the inspiration for Birdie - four heroic lighthouse women and girls, including the Maine herione, Abbie Burgess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birdie's Lighthouse-- a terrific book! 9 Jun 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book made me smile. I have known Deborah Hopkinson since I was born, and I am now fifteen. I think she is a wonderful writer and comes up with really clever ideas for books. I never knew there was someone that actually took care of the light house, I thought it was just there. She has a way of writing fiction that teaches readers at the same time. I also loved her other book, SWEET CLARA AND THE FREEDOM QUILT. When I read her books, I can sort-of hear her reading them aloud, telling the story of Clara or Birdie. She will always be dear to me and I hope that she keeps writing books for a long time to come.
