Activity Overview


Several themes are present in the book. Students can pick a theme to explore and should support their choice with specific details or events from the text. One prominent theme is family/companionship.


Example Student Response

Family/Companionship

Pandora and Seabold both live solitary lives and are fine with it. However, throughout the story they find that they like and need the companionship of each other. Then when the three mice arrive, they find that they enjoy having the comfort of a family.


Example 1:

Pandora has been a lighthouse keeper for years in almost complete solitude. Though she loves her job, when Seabold arrives, she cannot help but love the changes happening in her life. She realizes she can still do her dream job and have a family.


Example 2:

Seabold has always been a sailor. When he was old enough, he built a boat and was off sailing the sea ever since. However, living at the lighthouse and seeing Pandora's selflessness made Seabold yearn for companionship and a higher purpose.
