The Lovereading4Kids comment
Ruth Brown is famous for her appealing drawings of animals and nature, and here beautiful full page paintings tell the dramatic dual story of Grace Darling, the Victorian heroine and lighthouse keeper’s daughter who goes out on a wild and windy night to rescue a ship in trouble whilst Gracie, the lighthouse cat goes in search of one of her kittens that’s gone astray. Can she rescue her kitten from the perilous sea? Written and illustrated with power and pathos Ruth Brown’s picture books are a delight for parents to share with their toddler and for young children to enjoy on their own too.
Gracie, the Lighthouse Cat by Ruth Brown
One stormy night Grace Darling, the lighthouse keeper's daughter, spots a ship in trouble on the rocks. At the same time the lighthouse cat Gracie spots that a kitten from her new litter has strayed. Grace and Gracie both hurry to the rescue, braving the rain and storm. Grace alerts her father and together they take out the lifeboat; Gracie ventures into the dark night and howling wind looking and listening everywhere for her kitten. Ruth Brown is famous for her appealing drawings of animals and nature, and here beautiful full page paintings tell the dramatic dual story with power and pathos.
