Don't Worry, Little Crab

By Chris Haughton

A bold, beautiful board book about taking the time you need to overcome your fears and, with the support of a loved one, building up the courage to try something new.

THE WINNER OF THE INDIE BOOK AWARD 2020 In the rockpool above the sea, live two crabs: Very 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. "Oh..." Will Little Crab be brave enough to go in?
