Beautiful, realistic illustrations and an elegantly simple text illuminate the basic characteristics of crustaceans for the very young.

Award-winning author Cathryn Sill and her husband, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill, offer young readers a first glimpse into the world of crustaceans. The simple text describes how crustaceans look, how they protect themselves, what they eat, and where they live.

The beautifully detailed, full-color illustrations reflect the diversity of the crustacean population-from a Sand Fiddler to a California Rock Lobster-and present each in its natural habitat. An afterword provides further details on the crustaceans to inspire young readers to learn more.
