Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie

by Peter and Connie Roop
Illustrated by Peter E. Hanson

Published by Carolrhoda, 1985
40 pages

Ages 5-11

Abbie Burgess is one of the brave lighthouse keepers of U.S. history. In 1856, young Abbie assumed responsibility throughout a storm off the Maine coast which kept her father away and while illness prevented her mother from maintaining the lamps. Tension and excitement are well handled in short fiction based on an actual event. Each page is illustrated with watercolor paintings and a historical note precedes the text.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
