The Book Fairies are thrilled to be sharing this perfect new story from the legend that is Michael Morpurgo!

About the book:

It was Benjamin Postlethwaite’s job all his long life to make sure the light shone brightly high up in the lighthouse on Puffin Island. Not once in all his years as the lighthouse keeper had he ever let his light go out. But sometimes even the brightest light on a lighthouse cannot save a ship.

This is a story of a life-changing friendship, a lost puffin, and a lonely artist. It’s the story of an entire lifetime, and how one event can change a life forever. From masterful storyteller, Michael Morpurgo, and world-class illustrator, Benji Davies, comes a magical new story. This truly beautiful tale will enchant readers of all ages.

Book fairies sought out seaside resorts, marina, popular piers, lighthouses and more at which to leave copies of The Puffin Keeper! We hope the lucky finders enjoy losing themselves on the Scilly Isles with some great characters.
