Hello Lighthouse

Hello Lighthouse

A beautiful picture book about hope, change and the passing of time. Winner of the Caldecott Medal 2019.

On the highest rock of a tiny island at the edge of the world stands a lighthouse. From dusk to dawn, the lighthouse beams, sending its light out to sea, guiding the ships on their way. As the seasons pass and the waves rise and fall, outside, the wind blows; inside, the lighthouse keeper writes, and the rhythms of his life unfold. But change is on the horizon…

With beautiful illustrations from Sophie Blackall – the artist behind New York Times bestseller, Finding Winnie.

Reviews

I will be surprised if a more exquisite picture book is published this year ... her illustrations evoke American folk art, early Renaissance painting and traditional Japanese seascapes, but in a synthesis all her own.
New York Times
Painted with the featherlight touch that distinguishes Caldecott Medalist 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.
