When they’re reading Ouch! by Jennifer Bell, children will love shouting “OUCH!”, as the crab does, every time he’s released. Written to give crabs a voice, and help children see a long summer through crabs eyes, Jennifer Bell hopes to encourage small children to respect all living creatures.

Ouch! will delight young readers with this tale of a crab being rudely returned to his rock pool, on his back, in tangle of seaweed, and lastly on his head! Each colourful illustration of the crab’s experiences by West Country artist, Jane Leitch will delight young readers.
