Waterstones Says

A little crab is both very excited and very scared about taking a dip for the very first time. Haughton’s instantly recognisable artwork adorns this adorable story about working up the courage to take on a big challenge. 

As Heard on CBeebies Bedtime Stories, read by Tom Hardy

From the multi award-winning picture book maker of A Bit Lost, Oh No, George!, Shh! We Have a Plan and Goodnight Everyone comes a bold new picture book about building up the courage to try something new. In the rockpool above the sea, live two crabs: Big Crab and Little Crab. Today, they're going for a dip in the sea.

"This is going to be so great!" says Little Crab. But then Little Crab catches a first glimpse of the water... Oh. The waves! They're ENORMOUS. "JEEPERS!" Will Little Crab be brave enough to go in?

MEDIA REVIEWS

It’s a gorgeous, wry and heart-warming “you-can-do-anything” picture book. - Imogen Russell Williams, The Guardian

Haughton uses a distinct and refined colour palette, against which the crabs’ large eyes pop in perpetual surprise. It is a visual treat that also doubles as an accessible parable about anxiety. - Sara Keating, The Irish Times

Haughton’s distinctive bold artwork offers a fresh, contemporary take on themes of independence and building courage - The Bookseller, Children’s Previews

Magical underwater revelment with a sprinkle of seashore style. - The Booksniffer

A charming tale for young children about being brave. - The Irish Independent, Children’s Books of the Year

“The most beautiful book about support and courage.”

Another very special book by the incredible Chris Haughton. I love his style, there are no other picture books like his. The colours he uses and the layering of very simple shapes are what make his books so special.... More
