Industry Reviews
'A tender, layered masterpiece that itself deserves to be passed along for generations' NEW YORK TIMES

'A lyrical love letter to the past . . . The illustrations feel like a patchwork quilt - with pieces of history and experience stitched together to make a beautiful and complete whole . . . Every page can be revisited over and over again' CHILDREN'S BOOK COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA

'Gloriously detailed . . . One of the most evocative and beautiful picture books I've had the pleasure of reading' BETTER READING

'Hums with life and the joys and tribulations of a large family . . . The story itself is told in lilting text which reads so well aloud, and the accompanying illustrations are colourful and joyous. I loved this book without reservation' READINGS

PRAISE FOR SOPHIE BLACKALL:

'Painted with the featherlight touch that distinguishes Caldecott Medallist Blackall's work, this graceful account of a lighthouse keeper's life celebrates a lost era . . . A jewel of a creation and a gift to those who dream of retreat' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

'I will be surprised if a more exquisite picture book will be published this year . . . Children will be fascinated' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
