This is truly one of the most adorable children's books I've ever read, with an important lesson for all ages.

Aqua Paws is a kitty who loves the water, except for one thing...crabs! He fears getting pinched and avoids them at all costs. One beautiful day he and his turtle friend Purple Beak go on an adventure in the ocean, collecting treasures and picking up trash. While exploring on his own Aqua Paws finds himself in a dangerous situation and must face his greatest fears when only a crab is available to help.

The illustrations in this book are utterly charming - I went back and studied each page at least three times! Aqua Paws is just darling decked out in his diving gear, and the little crab tucked into nearly every scene was a clever twist.

Most importantly, this story warns about the harm that can come to animals when humans litter. The book ends with a few tips to help Aqua Paws preserve the ocean, and a cute craft project showing how to build a crab using a toilet paper roll. 4 paws, 2 claws, and 8 legs up!

You just have to love that type of illustration that I see on the cover.
I love going into my small branch library and I can see from the checkout
desk right into the children's section. I often go over and pick up the
books to see the pictures. Thank you Mudpie, you pick the best.

Truth be told, crabs do kind of look scary.
