Synopsis

The Lighthouse Keeper's Tea by Ronda Armitage

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.
