Mr. Stacatto

Spent many carefree hours hunting clues with the Hardy boys and defending Redwall Abbey.

Hermit crab is growing and that means he must find a new shell. The shell he finds is quite plain, but during the course of a year, he invites many new sea friends to accompany him. Some add interesting colors to his shell, while others help protect him. A nice book from Eric Carle about adjusting to new situations and making the most of them.
