The Lighthouse Keeper's Cat

Hamish, the lighthouse cat, has been neglecting his duties. Naughty mice are running wild all over the place! With the lighthouse inspector due any day now, Mr and Mrs Grinling decide it’s time to put Hamish on a diet until he’s hungry enough to catch some mice. Horrified, a very huffy Hamish decides to run away! Surely he can find some owners who appreciate him better! But it’s not long before Hamish realises that there’s no place like home… A delightful picture book from a classic series, taking a charming and comical look at home life from a cat’s point of view.
