Julia Donaldson Lydia Monks

About the book

Three friends, sharing a shell

Down by the sparkling sea.

Especially created for World Book Day, this delightful song is based on the hugely popular SHARING A SHELL (978 1 4050 2048 0). The tiny hermit crab doesn’t want to share his shell with a blobby purple anemone and a tickly bristleworm. But life in the rock pool proves tougher than Crab thinks, and soon he finds he needs his new housemates. Set to music, this singsong adventure of sea, shells and friendship is ideal for all children who can’t wait to spend their World Book Day voucher!
