    Sweet animal adventure story about rescuing an otter. Doesn't quite stand alone - first chapter sets the stage/reminds the reader how the lighthouse family came to be - but there were few pictures to help tell what animal went with what name - wasn't until the end that I got a picture confirmation of what kind of animal Seabold was. Lots of lovely pictures that don't always help with comprehension support for intended readers of beginning chapter books.

    Boring...there was some nice use of vocabulary, but I was so unexcited by this book. The pictures, however, were quite lovely...just not paced (placed) correctly to add to the text.

    Pretty, and nice to show a family of choice, not blood. And great message of community coming together. But (surprisingly, for a rescue story) boring and too short & conceptually too simple for the likely audience. I guess if there are girls in second-grade who are reluctant readers who have access to dictionary or parent with vocabulary, they might like it. Or families who like to read aloud but who are truly pressed for time might.And why is the Cat, the 'matriarch,' named Pandora?

    Thanks to Edelweiss, I read a digital review copy of this 6th Lighthouse book. It is another sweet tale of life near the sea. Like others in the series, it is a perfect suggestion for advanced young readers.

    Charming illustrations and a sweet story in this early chapter book for beginning readers.
