Sharing a Shell

The tiny hermit crab loves his brand new shell. But sharing with a blobby purple anenome and a tickly bristleworm is getting a bit cramped! Join Crab, Blob and Anenome as they part ways, and only then discover how much they need each other. This is a tale of sea, shells and friendship, presented in a board book format.
