Voyage to the Pharos
By Sarah Gauch
with illustrations by Roger Roth
Available at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
Also, in bookstores in the Middle East, including Diwan* and AUC bookstores in Cairo and Libraire Antoine in Beirut.
Written by journalist Sarah Gauch and illustrated by award-winning illustrator Roger Roth, Voyage to the Pharos is about a boy growing up on the small island of Rhodes in the Mediterranean. He has heard about a lighthouse far away across the sea in Alexandria, Egypt, the Pharos, one of the tallest buildings in the world that guides ships from miles away. More than anything, Dino wants to be on one of those ships. But getting on a ship and surviving on one are two different things.
Voyage to the Pharos is a Junior Library Guild Selection.

So, if you have some good news to share, let me know, so I can brag about knowing you.
