    Another sweet, gentle story of the mice making friends with an octopus family. I do wish the illustrations were coloured; the paperback edition is hard to see clearly if you are reading it with someone else.The story felt a bit skimped this time around; just about the time something looked like it might happen, it was the end. But for small children with short attention spans, it is a good read.

    I do love some Cynthia Rylant. A family consisting of a daddy dog, mommy cat, and three mice babies living in a lighthouse is a delightful concept. This a lovely book, and the vocabulary is excellent. WALT and I both learned some new things about oceans and tides. My only complaint is that there are actions in the book that talk about color, but the illustrations are all black and whiteI think the connection between words and pictures are so important for young readers, and even WALT remarked th [...]

    I adore Cynthia Rylant. I think she is unparalleled in her skill as a writer of children's books. She writes lyrically and never talks down to children. She books are powerful and wonderful. I absolutely adore her Cobblestreet Cousins series, and thought I'd never like any of her series better. You can imagine how delighted i was to find a series of book that takes place on a lighthouse (on of my girlhood dream settings) and it fully, lushly illustrated. These are wonderful, wonderful books!Pres [...]

    The Lighthouse Family series is about Pandora the cat (the mother figure and a light house keeper), a dog (the father figure - a sailor who washed up on the shores of the lighthouse and was nursed back to health by Pandora), and 3 mice children (Lila, Whistler, and Tiny). The stories are all sweet (but not syrupy), with just the right amount of drama and peril for young children. The relationships are central, and the language is marvelous. In this, the last in the series, Lila and Whistler go o [...]

    Charming and gently exciting, and makes you long for more adventures with the Lighthouse Family. The emphasis on friendship--helping and gratitude are very clear in this book. I love the rich vocabulary. I wonder if she'll ever write more in this series?--I hope so!Our five year old said, "Is that really it?" Sadly so.

    This is the 5th and final book in The Lighthouse Family. We're sorry to see Pandora, Seabold and the mice children go. The next chapter series we're attempting is Cynthia Rylant's Cobble Street Cousins.

    The Corbchops and I are sad that we are done with this series.
