Age range 3 to 8 This delightful story takes place on a stormy wet-season night at the Broome lighthouse. Meet Cassius the hermit crab, Jacob the jellyfish, Bruce the bluebone and more sea creatures as they head down the beach and race up the lighthouse staircase to escape a wild storm - all while the lighthouse keeper is out checking the lamp for passing ships. When he discovers his bed has been taken over by slimy sea creatures, he is very grumpy. With new design complemented by beautiful illustrations, this new edition brings to life the excitement of the storm and introduces sea creatures that live in this magical part of the world - the hermit crab, jellyfish, bluebone fish, octopus and turtle. The Grumpy Lighthouse Keeper is inspired by the iconic Broome lighthouse and the remains of the old lighthouse keeper's house that sits on the edge of the world-renowned Cable Beach.
