The Animal Lighthouse

Brought up by a wonderful group of animals on a hidden island somewhere deep in the Caribbean, Jim knows no other life or who his real parents are. He washed up on the island as a baby in a barrel of rum, and has been helping run its special lighthouse with the animals ever since. But now, trouble is brewing…

Someone, or something, has stolen the lighthouse bulb filaments. If Jim, Oscar and the other animals can’t get the lighthouse beams working again, the hidden island will no longer be a secret. And with a pirate ship on the horizon, danger is about to smash their tranquil island apart…

The Animal Lighthouse is a humorous, heartwarming middle-grade pirate-adventure novel (with illustrations by Ciara Flood!), published by Guppy Books. It’s for ages 6 to 12.
