Oh no! Crabby doesn't feel well, and Plankton is determined to play doctor. But Plankton's ideas aren't always the most helpful. He takes his own temperature, wraps Crabby in bandages, and caters to Crabby's increasingly outrageous demands. Will Crabby get better before Plankton finally loses his cool?

This timely story addresses a concern on every child's mind -- how can we help when our friends are sick?

With comic speech bubbles and full-color artwork throughout, Geisel Award Honoree Jonathan Fenske's early reader series is sure to be a hit with new readers!

Praise For…


Praise for Hello, Crabby! (A Crabby Book #1):

"Crabby's persistent grumpiness and the patient Plankton's exasperation are shown clearly in their expressive eyes and mouths as well as their dialogue. Pages broken into colorful panels and color-coded speech bubbles help beginning readers focus on the words... So silly it's unlikely to make new readers crabby." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Let's Play, Crabby! (A Crabby Book #2):

"Appropriately repetitive dialogue-only text, uncluttered backgrounds, and a small trim size help new readers make the transition to longer books. Throughout, Crabby and Plankton remain true to their personas. Crabby is grumpy but polite -- not actively mean. The persistent Plankton, though increasingly exasperated, is ultimately patient. Neither abandons civility and courtesy just because they have different interests or styles. Crabby and Plankton's attempts at understanding and friendship provide good examples for beginning readers." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Barnacle Is Bored:

"This playful book addresses the universal problem of feeling bored while everyone else appears to be having a great time... Barnacle's round eyes and expressive eyebrows create endearing and silly expressions." -- School Library Journal

"In a mischievous skit of a story, Geisel Award Honoree Fenske (A Pig, a Fox, and a Box) introduces a dyspeptic barnacle for whom the sea grass is always greener -- until it isn't ... From narration that consists entirely of Barnacle's mopey monologue to a dockside environment defined by creamy blue water, a bit of sand, and a couple planks, Fenske keeps it simple, deploying his closing jokes with confident comic timing." -- Publishers Weekly

"What better protagonist could there be to illustrate boredom than a sedentary barnacle?... This tale where 'the seaweed is always greener' is an entertaining antidote to boredom." -- Booklist
