Best-selling author Robert Munsch's poignant story is about a little girl and how she begins to heal after the loss of her grandfather.
Young Sarah Gillis can't sleep following her grandpa's funeral, so she wakes up her dad in the middle of the night. He agrees to take her where Grandpa used to take him as a boy--the lighthouse. On the way there, Sarah and her dad drink coffee and eat donuts--just as Grandpa would have liked. When they climb to the top of the lighthouse, Sarah throws a flower out to sea in her grandpa's memory.
Robert Munsch's tender story is about honoring those who have passed and keeping their memory alive. Janet Wilson's detailed and dramatic illustrations add a warm and gentle touch to a sensitive topic.
