Nipper, a loveable crab, has huge, clumsy claws. No matter what games he plays with his friends Nipper’s claws always get in his way. So the friends decide to play hide-and-seek—something they can all do together, but Nipper’s claws ruin his hiding place! So instead, Nipper looks for his friends while they hide. He finds Turtle and Jellyfish, but there’s no sign of Octopus. Until Nipper sees that Octopus is tangled tight in the weeds. Now it’s up to Nipper to rescue Octopus with his big claws! This companion title to Fidgety Fish and Smiley Shark features the same bold, delightful illustrations, humorous text and is peppered with onomatopoeia kids really love.
