The Lighthouse Keeper: The Lighthouse Keeper's Catastrophe

Fire? Police? Ambulance? No: it’s a lighthouse emergency! Oh dear. Hang on for a rescue plan… What’s worse than losing your key? Losing the lighthouse key. Oops. Now nobody can get in to shine the light. Without a light to guide them at night, the ships in the bay will be in danger. Uh-oh: this calls for a clever rescue plan… Thrills, giggles, surprises, great colour pictures: this book packs them all into a sunny seaside mission. Bring an ice cream along.
