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. Mr and Mrs Grinling are looking forward to an extra-special Christmas with their great-nephew, George. But on Christmas Eve, Mr Grinling and George get stranded in the middle of a storm! Can Mrs Grinling reach them in time for Christmas dinner? The first Lighthouse Keeper story, THE LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER'S LUNCH, published over thirty years ago. It is now a modern picture book classic, and his adventures have been loved by children ever since.
