Lampie by Annet Schaap



Every evening Lampie, the lighthouse keeper’s daughter, must light a lantern to warn ships away from the rocks.  But one stormy night disaster strikes.  The lantern goes out, a ship is wrecked and an adventure begins.  In disgrace, Lampie is sent to work as a maid at the Admiral’s Black House, where rumour has it that a monster lurks in the tower.  But what she finds there is stranger and more beautiful than any monster.  Soon Lampie is drawn into a fairy tale adventure in a world of mermaids and pirates, where she must fight with all her might for friendship, freedom and the right to be different.
