Hector the hermit crab is very shy. He avoids contact with other creatures whenever possible. But one day a flower appears on his shell, and suddenly Hector becomes the focus of everyone's attention. He thinks his fellow crabs aren't friendly, but he is soon proved wrong:the others compliment him, much to his surprise, and he learns that making friends isn't nearly as difficult as he'd imagined.
This vibrant and uniquely illustrated picture book has a childlike humor and simple message that will be felt deeply by anyone who has ever wished to crawl into a shell and hide.
