With his signature humor and amazing facts, best-selling author Jerry Pallotta offers a decapod for every letter of the alphabet.

Meet dozens of crustaceans—and a few bonus animals—with engaging text and a laugh-out-loud narrative, from A (Arrow Crab) to E (exoskeleton) to I (Imocaris, a kind of fossil scientists believe to be the first crab on earth) to Z (Zebra Hermit Crabs, which have a hard covering on their legs and claws, but their body is soft). Readers of all ages will be entertained (and learning!) with every page turn.
