Once there was a lighthouse keeper called Mr. Grinling. At night
time he lived in a small white cottage perched high on the cliffs,
and in the daytime he rowed out to his lighthouse to clean and
polish the light. When Mr Grinling decides he needs a hobby, he tries
everything from baking to birdwatching. But one morning, a stroll
along the beach inspires Mr Grinling to take up something very
different... and before too long Mr Grinling surprises everyone
by learning to surf! The first Lighthouse Keeper story, THE LIGHTHOUSE
KEEPER'S LUNCH, was published over thirty years ago and
his adventures have been loved by children ever since. It is now
a modern picture book classic.
This is Book 1 in the The Lighthouse Keeper Series. See all The Lighthouse Keeper books here.
