Tino and the Typoon is a great book about a boy who lives a fun life of adventure in a coastal village in the Philippines. There’s one thing holding him back from completely helping his family with the lighthouse. It’s a wonderful story of learning that children can overcome their fears.
“We will go up together,” Erlinda said. I’m not sure who was the greater hero during the great typhoon that threatened the lives of the village’s men still at sea–Tino, who lit the beacon lamp at the top of the lighthouse, or his sister Erlinda, who helped him overcome his fear of heights to do so. Either way, this is great story–rich in culture, love, help, and heroism.
It was an entertaining story about a busy little boy. Tata Picoy’s Story was not expected and added a bit of fun to the book that I wasn’t expecting. The moral to the story was not lost in the different explaination and it felt like that was just the start of the adventure and lessons.
In the coastal Philippine village of Darapidap lives a boy named Tino, the lighthouse keeper’s son. Watching his father keep the light inspires Tino to do a grown man’s work, but his fears hold him back in his father’s eyes. When a fierce storm threatens the safety of the village and the fishermen at sea, Tino’s courage is put to a true test.
