    DescriptionThe tiny hermit crab loves his brand new shell. But sharing with a blobby purple anenome and a tickly bristleworm is getting a bit cramped! Join Crab, Blob and Anenome as they part ways, and only then discover how much they need each other, in this rollicking tale of sea, shells and friendship. Now in brand new board book format, this sparkling tale, with glitter on every spread, can now be shared with even the youngest children.
