    1. Thanks for your comment. The pages were included to show an example of the artwork in the book and were not intended to be read. Sorry that wasn’t made clear.

  1. Actually watched the video version and absolutely loved it, but somehow comments would not work.
    Already purchased the book and had it shipped to our 9 year old Granddaughter. Thank Thank you many times thank you for telling this story to young ladies.

    I seriously think Anna should look into also telling the story of Abbie Burgess of Matinicus Rock Lighthouse.

    Thank You Again,
    Bret and Laura
