Review by Nadaness In Motion
Crazy Crab is a short, fun, children's picture book by Mark Evans, with illustrations by Steve Page.
Crazy Crab is about Steve, an excellent Hermit crab marketer, who "can sell fried calamari to a squid", but who is unhappy with his life despite his success.
Steve is a crab with a dream, an ambition to become an astronaut. All his friends think he is crazy to dream such a dream, but Steve, with his hard work and strong ambition, ignores them and works hard to attain his goal.
Crazy Crab is a beautiful story with a lesson at the end. If you work for it, your dream will become a reality.
The illustrations are vibrant, interesting and exciting.
Full of hope and encouragement, Crazy Crab is a must-read for all children and parents.
Note: I received a free copy of Crazy Crab by Mark Evans in exchange for an honest review.
