The sea is a unique world filled with life. It has its own beauty and wonders. In author Jak. E. Rander’s new picture book, he will provide readers a glimpse into this beautiful world as he shares the story of Colin the Crab. Readers will embark on a wonderful journey and adventure as they follow Colin and his friends at Brightsea.

Colin the Crab lived with his friends in the rock pools on the sandy foreshore below the holiday village of Brightsea. Many of his adventures with his friends involved some of the countless visitors to Brightsea. Some were selfish and thoughtless and others were kind and considerate to the creatures which inhabit the sea between high and low tides. One day, he encountered a horrible incident when a black-backed seagull pecked on him violently. Fortunately, a young boy came just in time to rescue him and everything in his life changed forever. Jeff became Colin’s, and his friends, friend. But when a storm arrived, most of them were washed ashore. Sammy the starfish was even taken by a boy for his nature table at school. Would there be someone to help them and rescue Sammy? This book tells all.

Enhanced by its lovely and colorful illustrations, Colin the Crab is an endearing read that is packed with amusement, lessons, and inspiration to captivate everyone.

This book will be featured at the 2012 Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Peoria, Ill. on October 9-12, 2012.
