The Cranky Blue Crab

The Cranky Blue Crab is a read-aloud picture book by Dawn L. Watkins. Crusty the Crab is restless and unhappy. He leaves his seaside home under Jaggedy Ledge to look for adventure.
As he travels across Sea Meadow he meets new friends, but he doesn’t appreciate their kind patience, even when they help him to survive a scuffle with swarming bees. When he runs into trouble with Finefur the Sly, his new friends come to his aid. Crusty realizes that happiness comes more from what you are than from where you live. Illustrations by Tim Davis complement this story for young readers from JourneyForth.
