The Lighthouse Keeper's Picnic

Oh yum! It’s time for a scrumptious seaside picnic made by the best cook in the world. Summer reading doesn’t come better (and this picture book is great for sharing, too). Imagine a small white cottage perched on the cliffs. A red-and-white lighthouse you can row to in a little boat each day. And lots of tasty treats to enjoy at the village picnic. Does that sound like bliss? It is – until the Lighthouse Keeper eats a bit too much…

  • A hilarious classic from a best-loved series
  • Problem-based story that really get kids thinking
  • Fabulous seaside setting full of things to spot
  • Beautifully illustrated in a bold, vibrant style
