Publisher: Andersen Press

Gracie, the Lighthouse Cat

The true story of Grace Darling, the Victorian lighthouse keeper’s daughter who, with her father, saved the lives of nine passengers from the shipwrecked SS Forfarshire in a courageous sea rescue in 1838, is cleverly used as the background for this tale of Gracie the cat, who performs her own act of heroism as the Darlings battle the crashing waves in their little rowing boat. Beautifully illustrated and thrillingly told, this is an adventure that is bound to captivate young imaginations, and also raise questions about the nature of heroism, relative to one’s personal resources. How do pupils think they might react in a similar crisis? And can they produce works of fiction inspired by their own, real-life heroes or heroines?
