Description
A thick fog has found its way up north to the lighthouse family, surrounding the cliffs and the waters below. Always ready to lend a hand, the lighthouse siblings, Whistler and Lila, help Seabold guide small ships to land. As they overlook the foggy waters, a distant voice emerges from the rocks below. Using only a rope and their hearts as a guide, the lighthouse crew makes their way down the side of the cliff and find much more than the strongest light could have shown.
Through the tales of a surprising new friend, Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant and illustrator Preston McDaniels bring readers the excitement of exploration and the enjoyment of helping those in need.
