Editorial Reviews

Review

“McPhail’s line-and-watercolor illustrations dramatically capture both the landscape and the dreamscape of the story: lofty clouds, white-capped waves, and the undulations of the sea offer the suggestion of something ethereal while at the same time grounding the story in its literal seaside setting.” --BCCB

“‘The Abandoned Lighthouse’ written by Albert Lamb and wonderfully illustrated by David McPhail, offers vicarious adventure for readers” –The Wall Street Journal

“McPhail’s line-and-watercolor illustrations dramatically capture both the landscape and the dreamscape of the story: lofty clouds, white-capped waves, and the undulations of the sea offer the suggestion of something ethereal while at the same time grounding the story in its literal seaside setting.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“McPhail’s pen-and-ink drawings . . .are a perfect match for Lamb’s spare narrative.” –School Library Journal

“Imaginative and mysterious, this quietly told tale is pleasing in its simplicity and its childlike sense of adventure.” –Booklist

“The accessible sentences, early-reader trim size, and slightly mysterious setting and adventure are just right for newly independent readers.” –Publishers Weekly

I bought my first copy of this beautifully illustrated book on the recommendation of the WSJ review. Their review suggested this as a wonderful read for young boys. My 4 year old grandsons loved the adventure, and sat on the edge of their seats each time I read it...as did granddaughters!
