The Light­house Wave

Joan and her family of animals living in and around the lighthouse are plunged into darkness by a huge wave that extinguishes the light – thank goodness, for once, that the lightning strikes…!

A lighthouse overlooks a treacherous area of the sea. One night there was an incredible storm - the sky was pitch black and the wind tore through the night. A freak wave washed right over the lighthouse. What happened when the light went out?
