A House for Hermit Crab

by Eric Carle

One Potato Review

Kind of disappointing, honestly, when Hermit Crab doesn’t get to keep at least one of his crusty collectibles, still these illustrations – of corals and urchins and anemones and especially something called a lanternfish glowing, and leading the way through an otherwise forbidding forest of sea grass – prove sufficiently diverting you probably won’t even realize you’re learning a lesson till it’s already too late. A simple consolation, resplendently detailed by the great Eric Carle, who has so many simple and resplendent books in circulation that you barely know where to look first. Look here.
