Synopsis:  Cranky Crab is NOT ready for bed.  The sea creatures around him are all drifting off to sleep, but he just wants to eat snacks and play!  Follow Crab as he travels past sea stars, dolphins, clams, turtles, jellies, and more, snuggling down into their habitats.  Will Crab go to sleep without a fuss?  Maybe what he really needs is a good-night kiss.

This sweet, rhyming text is brought to life in unique, soft technicolor, and the dreamy underwater world will soothe even the crankiest little crabs!

“…a whimsical and watery bedtime story” – Kirkus Reviews
