Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

Don’t Worry, Little Crab

From the multi award-winning picture book maker of A Bit Lost, Oh No, George!Shh! We Have a Plan and Goodnight Everyone comes a bold new picture book about building up the courage to try something new.

In the rockpool above the sea, live two crabs: Big Crab and Little Crab. Today, they’re going for a dip in the sea. “This is going to be so great!” says Little Crab. But then Little Crab catches a first glimpse of the water… Oh. The waves! They’re ENORMOUS. “JEEPERS!” Will Little Crab be brave enough to go in?

“Haughton uses a distinct and refined colour palette, against which the crabs’ large eyes pop in perpetual surprise. It is a visual treat that also doubles as an accessible parable about anxiety.” 

The Irish Times

“The mixed emotions of a little one experiencing a new situation are captured with warmth and humour and the explosion of colour underwater is a delight.
