This beautifully and brightly illustrated book tells the story of a crab, trying to find a shell in which to shelter. The crab meets an anemone who saves him from a fish and a bristleworm who cleans his shell. The crab sees how the anemone and bristleworm can help him in his home, and lets them move in. However, the sea creatures start to get fed up of one another as they get bigger. Crab and Anemone have a falling out and they go their separate ways. A storm comes, and destroys Crab and Anemone’s homes…will they be able to make peace and create a new home?

The words have an easy to follow rhythm, with repeated words and sentences which children will quickly pick up, and soon be able to read along.
