"A story full of drama and excitement, with a special quiet at its heart."
Millie’s grandpa, known to all as Big Frank, has been lighthouse keeper at the See-Saw lighthouse all his life; ‘Dear Old Girl’ is his nickname for the lighthouse in fact.
But times change, and Big Frank is being replaced by technology. Millie realises the effect this is having on her grandpa, and understands too that his knowledge of the weather, the tides and the coastline, accumulated over many decades, are just as trustworthy as the shiny new boxes and cables. Sure enough, when a huge storm rolls in, Grandpa and Millie come to the rescue, the old way of doing things proving the best.
It's a story full of drama and excitement, measured by roaring winds and pounding waves, but there’s a quiet at its heart too, and that is the love and connection between a little girl and her grandpa. A story that young and old will cherish.
