PB Planet Spotlight: The Hermit Crab

Big PB Planet applause for The Hermit Crab by Carter Goodrich (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2009). After an extremely shy hermit crab discovers and dons a fancy new "shell," he certainly looks like a hero, but is he one? With a neighbor in danger, and everyone else too scared to help, can the little crustacean save the day--and survive the resulting attention? (My hermie, Rocky Raccoon, gives two claws up to Goodrich's illustrations--particularly the funny facial expressions of the flounder and the rest of the hermit crab's undersea neighbors!) Zoom on over to your local bookstore and bring it back to your home planet today!
