Picture Book Spotlight: THE HERMIT CRAB

Not everyone wants to be a hero.

Carter Goodrich’s THE HERMIT CRAB is the story of a, well, hermit crab who finds himself without a shell. In finding a new home, he becomes an unwitting hero, but all he wants to do is stay out of the spotlight!


Full of beautiful illustrations, THE HERMIT CRAB offers an endearing alternative to the standard hero tale: being shy is ok.
