A sweet and simple tale of compassion and sharing.
Elena is a baby Tapir with a taste for shiny, colourful shells. One day, a sneaky shell escapes from Elena’s impressive collection of wonderful seashells. Elena uses all her efforts to get it back but she is faced with some big decisions about what’s really important.
“Robbins’ bright, childlike illustrations and minimal text match the sweet simplicity of her tale. Both tapir and hermit crab are adorable. An important lesson deftly delivered.” —Kirkus Reviews (U.S.)
