Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poor Hermit Crab! He's outgrown his snug little shell, so he finds himself a larger one — and many new friends to decorate and protect his new house. But what will happen when he outgrows this shell, and has to say good-bye to all the sea creatures who have made Hermit Crab's house a home?

Children facing change in their own lives will relate to Hermit Crab's story — and learn a lot about the fascinating world of marine life along the way.

Review:

"Carle's underwater neighborhood is snug, dynamic and full of possibilities. Droplets of color enrich the sea bottom and blades of seaweed are superimposed on the bright white background, in pictures that are occasionally quite abstract, but always engaging." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A modern-day fable that is based on the habits of the hermit crab; the book also describes the wonders of marine life and is beautifully illustrated with collage art." Children's Literature

Review:

"Carle includes a little factual information about the various sea creatures mentioned in the story at the end of the book. A good solid picture book with many story hour and bibliotherapy possibilities." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Join Hermit Crab as he learns an important lesson about growing up: For every friend and adventure left behind, there are new ones just ahead!

Synopsis:

This new board book edition of the successful picture book tells the story ofHermit Crab, who lovingly decorates his shell with underwater friends only tohave to move out when he grows too big for it. Full color.
