AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Inspired by the remains of the old lighthouse keeper’s house on the edge of Cable Beach in Broome, this delightful story takes place on a stormy wet season night. Meet Cassius the hermit crab, Jacob the jellyfish, Bruce the bluebone and more sea creatures as they hurtle themselves up the lighthouse staircase to escape the wild weather—all while the lighthouse keeper is out checking the lighthouse lamp. When the lighthouse keeper returns to the lighthouse, he is very grumpy.' (Source: Publishers website)
