    2. Fay, a teenage girl, lives a lonely existence on an isolated island where her father is the lighthouse keeper. She has many chores to do looking after her father and the house, with a donkey as her only company. The outbreak of the First World War is greeted with excitement, as ships full of troops pass by the island. Kay is swept up in the nationalistic fervour, conveying messages to soldiers' loved ones at home via signals sent from the ships. She even receives a personal message for herself f [...]


    3. The compelling story of a young girl's lonely existence on a small island, 'Lighthouse Girl' is based on a true story.Fay lives with her father and one other lightkeeper on Breaksea Island. Her mother is dead, as are a number of her siblings. Life is harsh, but Fay is an optimistic young lady, and makes the best of her life. There is great excitement when war breaks out, but the reality of the situation becomes clear as news from the front filters back to Australia. Brian Simmonds beautiful illu [...]


    4. It was really good. :) I liked the way it was written - the story interspersed with diary entries. The illustrations were amazing, and the way the 'diary pages' were put together was really good. I also liked the fact that it is a true Australian story. I only wish it was kind of deeper. The diary entries were really good, but I found the sections written from the third person point of view were too simple. They could've been so much more. But of course, I realize it is for younger readers, so I [...]


    5. Picture Book/Juvenile Fiction. Based on the true story of Fay Howe, a lighthouse keeper's daughter on Breaksea Island. When war is declared in 1914, troop ships anchor within sight of Fay's island, on their way to Gallipoli. Fay is asked to telegraph messages from the soldiers on the ships who wish to send their loved ones a last farewell. Soon, she receives postcards from those soldiers fighting at the war zone, and from one in particular, addressed to 'The Little Girl on Breaksea Island'. This [...]


    6. This was a sweet little book. A little shorter than I expected, it was over before I knew it! But I really enjoyed it even as it was a little younger than what I usually read. I loved the photos, and the illustrations were beautiful.I liked reading from Fay's journal the most.I was really interested in the morse code, too. Fay is very clever. The picture of her at the back of the book is one of my favourite in the story. I also liked the Kangaroo mascot in Egypt.


    7. *3.5 stars* It was a great read, but not exactly to my taste but I guess that's to be expected from school books


    8. I read this book with a group of year 7 girls. They appreciated the budding romance between Fay and Charlie, and were keen to follow this strand of the story. The book itself has beautiful illustrations along with historical photographs, newspaper clippings and postcards. This is a great, engaging book for young adults as an introduction to the time period of World War II. There are many activities that can flow from this text - for example, we had a morning tea with traditional foods like spong [...]


    9. I loved it. I'm biased because I live in Albany but it gave me some fresh insight into life in this beautiful town at the beginning of last century and at war. I highly recommend this to all who are interested in Australian History and Albany specifically.


    10. A wonderful way to bring some Australian history to life. A mix of text, illustration and snippets from newspapers and postcards of the time. The main character has been taken from a real family of the time and this further adds to the gravitas of the story.


    11. Although it starts a little slowly, this is a gorgeous World War I story written for primary school aged children but still enjoyable for adults. It's beautifully presented and works in interesting information about Australia's role in the Great War.



    12. What a lovely, moving read for junior fiction. I liked the way it was part in journal format as well as telling the story. Will read Light Horse boy next.
