More About This Title Sharing a Shell


Three friends, sharing a shell,
Down by the sparkling sea,
Rollicking all round the rock pool
In their wonderful home for three.

When the little hermit crab finds a shiny new shell, at first he doesn't want to share it—not with a blobby purple anemone and a tickly bristleworm, anyway! Join Crab, Blob and Brush in a story all about learning how to share.
