About the Book

Join Crab and Snail in the surf zone, where they think deep thoughts and have unforgettable seaside adventures, in this graphic early reader series debut by New York Times bestselling author Beth Ferry and beloved illustrator Jared Chapman.

The never-ending rain is putting a damper on Crab and Snail’s plans for a sunny, funny day. So when the BBFs (Best Beach Friends) realize that it’s only raining on them, they put their heads together and consult one know-it-all gull (he really does know it all!) to get to the bottom of it. By the time the rain clears, the duo will have made a new friend and learned something new and wonderful about friendship!

Crab and Snail are everyone’s next favorite characters in the graphic early reader space. Fans of Narwhal & Jelly; Pea, Bee, & Jay; and Arlo & Pips will love these quirky characters and clever stories.

"A character-based volume that reads like a cross between SpongeBob SquarePants and The Muppet Show."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Critical Praise

A character-based volume that reads like a cross between SpongeBob SquarePants and The Muppet Show: there’s a passel of adorably goofy marine characters, lots of snappy repartee, and even a wisecracking chorus in the form of two barnacle brothers.  - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Fun, informative, visually appealing, and all sorts of clawsomeness! This book snails it. - Ben Clanton, Bestselling author of the Narwhal and Jellyfish series

Wow! Crab and Snail are sure to make a big splash with young readers. - Geisel Award winner Greg Pizzoli 

You won't find a funnier, more expressive crustacean and whatever-a-snail is duo! - Bob Shea, creator of Ballet Cat

Beth Ferry's story and Jared Chapman's art go together perfectly... just like Crab and Snail! - Tom Angelberger, author of the Origami Yoda series

It's not hard to sea what's so funny with Crab & Snail - they'll turn the tide on your rainy day blues! - Jeffrey Brown, author of Darth Vader and Son and My Teacher Is A Robot
