Erin loves to lie on the jetty, looking for the weirdest fish in the sea—the weirder, the better! And she knows
the best ones must be further out, where her mum won’t let her go. Out there in the deepest sea lies the Black
Rock: a huge, dark and spiky mass that is said to destroy any boats that come near it! Can Erin uncover the truth
behind this mysterious legend?

Lightship

Written and illustrated by Brian Floca

Monday, June 24, 2019 • 10:30 AM

This week’s book:
You may never have
heard of a lightship.

Once, lightships
anchored on waters
across America,
on the oceans
and in the Great Lakes,
floating where lighthouses
could not be built.
Smaller than most ships,
but more steadfast, too,
they held their spots,
through calm and storm,
to guide sailors
toward safe waters.

In these pages
one lightship
and her crew (and cat)
again hold their place.
The crew goes
again from bow to stern,
from keel to mast,
to run their engines,
shine their lights,
and sound their horns.

They run the small ship
that guides the large ships.
They are the crew (and cat)
that work to make the ocean safe,
that hold their place,
so other ships can sail.

Come aboard!
