Crawling Crabs

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
Crabs are often featured in cartoons and humorous vacation videos. Their name is used to describe a grouchy person. What are crabs really like? This book, from the series "No Backbone! The World of Invertebrates," introduces young readers to the watery or sandy world of crabs. Crabs number more than 4,500 kinds, all of which have features in common: they have eyes on eye stocks, they have claws (sometimes one claw is bigger), they have outer skeletons—their shells, that they outgrow and must shed or molt. This book's beautiful close-up photo illustrations and easy-to-read text features additional information about crabs: their habitats, locomotion, hunting behavior, and their efforts to avoid predators like otters, octopi, and sea birds. The book includes information about invertebrates, a picture glossary, an index, further reading sources, and Internet site references. Reviewer: Judy Crowder
