About The Book

Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant brings the peaceful sounds, sights, and characters of the coast vividly to life in the fourth book of the Lighthouse Family series, in which the family rescues a trapped turtle.

A thick fog has found its way up north to the Lighthouse Family, surrounding the cliffs and the waters below. Always ready to lend a hand, the lighthouse siblings, Whistler and Lila, help Seabold guide small ships to land. As they overlook the foggy waters, a distant voice emerges from the rocks below. Using only a rope and their hearts as a guide, the lighthouse crew makes their way down the side of the cliff and find much more than the strongest light could have shown.
