This beautiful, inspiring non-fiction book will fascinate all of us who have gazed at a lighthouse in awe and admiration.

It’s set out as a series of questions asked by a lighthouse-loving young person on a school trip, double page spreads providing the answers. It’s a simple, appealing and highly effective, especially as the text is accompanied by striking, stylish illustrations in rich reds and blues.

We learn what lighthouses are for, where the first ones were built, how they are constructed, why the light shines so far, and we get to look inside a lighthouse, thanks to a spectacular cross section, and even to gaze out from the top deck. It concludes with a spotlight on some of the world's most famous lighthouses and an invitation to young readers to design their own.

After reading this, they’ll be snatching up pens and rulers with massive enthusiasm.
