Press Reviews

Children throughout the ages have found fascination in rock pools, and this colourful and informative book is likely to be equally intriguing for inquisitive young naturalists. Our hero is a shy hermit crab who spots a shell that would make a perfect home. He eases himself into his new des res – just in time to avoid being turned into supper for a hungry seagull. This typically high-quality Usborne book is a natural history lesson and a story wrapped up in one exquisite package.
