Clem and Crab

Author: Fiona Lumbers
Illustrator: Fiona Lumbers
Publisher: Andersen Press

Clem’s encounter with a crab whose claw is caught in twisted plastic leads to the realisation for her and her classmates that everyone can play a part in protecting sea and shore and the wildlife that inhabits them: ‘Lots of small actions added together can make a big difference.’ This picturebook’s clear environmental message is reflected in the detail of the illustrations which also incorporate some gentle humour.
