The Lighthouse Keeper's Mystery x 30

We have selected The Lighthouse Keeper’s Mystery as our Age 0-6 Book of the Month for May. The first book in this best-loved classic series for almost two decades, this story is ideal for reading aloud or reading together with your child.

It follows classic character Mr Grinling and his friends as they try to find out who is dumping rubbish in the ocean near the lighthouse, bringing a topical conservation theme to a series renowned for thought-provoking plots. Packed with conversation starters, the book is perfect for discussing with young children in the classroom and at home, exploring issues of pollution and looking after our planet.

Like all the Lighthouse Keeper books, the story builds thinking skills by encouraging children to observe small details, predict events and deduce what is happening – all in the context of a vivid and puzzling mystery story that curious young children will love.

Supplied as a pack of 30 copies.
