Winter Reading 2014 Never Underestimate a Hermit Crab

This is a humorous look at hermit crabs. The author shares many unexpected things that hermit crabs do, such as imagine themselves as astronauts. The page on hermit crabs enjoying fashion reminded me of Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems - just the whole idea of animals that don't need clothing. but think it is fun to dress up. The illustrations are funny and it is amazing how much emotion can be shown by critters hidden in shells.

If you know someone who has a hermit crab or is getting one, this would make a very amusing gift. It does include some basic tips on hermit crab care in the back of the book, as well as advice to get more detailed information if you will be caring for one. The trailer show some of the illustrations from the book, so you can get a sense of the artistic style.

I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley.  It will be published on March 18, 2014.
