There comes a time in every reader’s life when she finds she must bend the rules. Of course we want to read all of the 1001 Children’s Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up. And we start this challenge with great resolve.

The Lighthouse keeper goes through a range of ups and downs during this book. Mr G cannot stop himself from falling asleep, and as a result he ends up losing his job. As the mood of this book was beginning to go on a downer, Mr G was provided with an opportunity to take his mind off things, which ultimately ended up in him getting his job back. This book would be a good read for young children, in addition illustrations were very interesting.
