9780060096045: The Lighthouse Cat

In an old lighthouse, where a twenty-four-candle lantern lights a sparkling blue-green sea, dwell a solitary keeper and his little companion -- a cat called Mackerel. Together the two climb up, up, up to watch over the nighttime sea and down, down, down to eat and play.

On one stormy night, the quick rush of a fierce wind darkens every candle. Soon an errant fishing boat, lost in the raging black sea, signals distress. Sure enough, it is the sudden glow of twenty-four flashing yellow lights that guide the boat away from danger. Just what could those new lights be?

She lives in southwest England.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4–This beautifully illustrated tale is set in the past, when a lighthouse was lit with a 24-candle lantern and the keeper was responsible for trimming the wicks every half hour. Using descriptive language, Stainton tells how a lonely keeper discovers a stray cat on board the supply boat and decides to keep him. Mackerel proves to be the perfect companion for the man, helping him to watch for boats and providing company at night. When a terrible storm knocks out the lantern and the keeper is unable to re-light it, Mackerel prevents a shipwreck by summoning 11 of his feline friends; they wait for the clouds to clear and then light up the area by having the moon reflect in their eyes. The illustrations are impressive. Full-page paintings are framed by ocean-blue backgrounds, while each page of text sports a circular vignette. A border of waves decorates the bottom of each spread. When the storm hits, the waves become dark and sinister looking. The close-up renderings of the gray-coated, green-eyed cat are especially appealing. This is a great book for children to read for personal enjoyment and for teachers to share as part of a history lesson.–Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA
