The Hermit Crab would prefer to keep to himself, but that all changes when he becomes a hero!
The hermit crab would prefer to blend into the background. He is happy to spend his time alone, looking for food. But when he finds a flashy new shell, he can't resist trying it on for size. He is so taken with it that he doesn't notice the mysterious contraption that floats down from the surface. While the lobster wonders if the contraption is a restaurant and the bluefish thinks it's a trap, the poor flounder gets stuck underneath! When the hungry hermit crab investigates the delicious smells coming from the contraption and frees the flounder, he inadvertently becomes a hero. But is the hermit crab ready for the limelight?
The illustrator of "A Creature Was Stilling" delivers this engaging tale of a humble hermit crab who frees a trapped flounder and inadvertently becomes a hero, but isn't quite ready for the limelight. Full color.
