Synopsis

The Lighthouse Keeper's Rescue 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. The Lighthouse Inspectors have decided that it's time for Mr Grinling to retire. But when a stranded whale desperately needs the Grinlings' help, the Lighthouse Inspectors realise that Mr Grinling is still the best man for the job. 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.
