A stunningly illustrated, enchanting fairytale adventure debut.
Lampie the lighthouse-keeper's daughter must climb sixty-one steps to light the lantern every evening and warn ships away from the rocks. One night, in the midst of a terrible storm, she discovers that her matches have run out... Disaster strikes, and an adventure begins.
Lampie is sent to work as a maid at the Admiral's Black House, where rumour has it that a monster lurks. What she discovers there throws her into a world of pirates and mermaids and puts her in terrible danger. Can she find a way to save the ones she loves?
Annet Schaap is one of the Netherlands' best-loved illustrators. Lampie and the Children of the Sea is her debut novel and won the 2018 Woutertje Pieterse Prize for the best Dutch children's book of the year.
