Delightfully narrated by Amy Howard Wilson. Follow the adventures of AAron & Gracie as they travel through time with the Ghost of Cap'n Angus!

Aaron and Gracie, meet Cap'n Angus, a salty old Scottish sea-captain's ghost, who takes them on virtual rality trips to sail on sailing ships, watch a sea rescue, and even meet one of their ancestors! The story is based on an actual lighthouse - Cape Otway Lighthouse, Victoria, Australia, where the author has ben a guest at the lighthouse keeper's cottage many times. This is where she met Cap'n Angus, one wild stormy night - he he he!

A great audio book version - narrated by the talented Amy Howard Wilson

   

Excerpt
"Are ye ready? I'm coming back. I'm re-materialising." The deep voice seemed to come from inside the white wall of the tower. A second later a hand, then an arm came out though the white wall. It was as if the bricks had magically parted like a curtain on a stage. In a few moments, the entire familiar figure of the old sailor had fully reapeared in front of them. Gracie felt the hair standing up on the back of her neck.

"Argh! You are a ghost!" she croaked and then fainted.

Captain angus the Lighthouse ghost
CAPTAIN ANGUS, THE LIGHTHOUSE GHOST by Wendy Laing

Reviewer: Jennifer LB Leese, http://www.geocities.com/ladyjiraff

Publisher: Wendave, http://wendave.com/wendaveaudiobooks.html

Release: 2002

ISBN: 0-9580814-0-9



Written using The Cape Otway Lighthouse in Victoria, Australia, Laing's

book, worthy as a teaching aid, instructs readers about colonial history in

Australia. Readers follow along with two children, exploring through a magic

time travel tunnel with an old Scottish sea captain. Available as a CD ROM

audio book, this reviewer enjoyed sharing this fascinating guide with her

three children (Australia descent).




Reader Reviews for "Captain Angus, the Lighthouse Ghost - e-book & audio download"


Reviewed by m j hollingshead
Captain Angus, the Lighthouse Ghost is an inviting venture for children sure to keep youngsters entertained as they travel through the interactive links allowing them to make a voyage through the internet.

Writer Laining really understands how to make history come alive for young readers. Children will make stops at sites where they can tour old ships, discover lighthouses and learn a little about them in the process.
