Synopsis

The Lighthouse Keeper's Breakfast 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. A fancy dress party is being held to celebrate the lighthouse's 200th birthday, and the Grinlings are determined to dress up as pirates. But when a real crew of pirates appear, the Grinlings get a big surprise! Are the scurvy pirates all they seem - or is something fishy going on? 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.
