"gorgeous, wry and heart-warming"

From the inimitable Chris Haughton, meanwhile, comes Don’t Worry, Little Crab, in which two crabs, big and little, set out to explore the sea – but Little Crab is frightened by the waves. Will the tiny crustacean find the courage to go in? Onomatopoeic narration (“They go TIC-A-TAC TIC-A-TAC over the rocks”) and exciting rhythms (“Hold tight! Here it comes! WHOOSH!”) combine with Haughton’s distinctive graphic style, featuring brightly coloured crabs, collage turquoise waves and an underwater paradise. It’s a gorgeous, wry and heart-warming “you-can-do-anything” picture book.
