Pick a book. Grow a Reader!

This series is part of Scholastic's early reader line, Acorn, aimed at children who are learning to read. With easy-to-read text, a short-story format, plenty of humor, and full-color artwork on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and fluency. Acorn books plant a love of reading and help readers grow!

It's just another day in the ocean for Crabby and Plankton -- until they find themselves INSIDE a school of fish! This gives Plankton a fabulous idea -- he and Crabby should play school! But Crabby does notwant to play. In four hilarious stories, Crabby uses funny wordplay to distract Plankton from teaching!

With comic speech bubbles and full-color artwork throughout, Geisel Award Honoree Jonathan Fenske's early reader series is sure to be a hit with new readers!

Praise For…


Praise for Hello, Crabby! (A Crabby Book #1):

"Crabby's persistent grumpiness and the patient plankton's exasperation are shown clearly in their expressive eyes and mouths as well as their dialogue. Pages broken into colorful panels and color-coded speech bubbles help beginning readers focus on the words... So silly it's unlikely to make new readers crabby." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Let's Play, Crabby! (A Crabby Book #2):

"Appropriately repetitive dialogue-only text, uncluttered backgrounds, and a small trim size help new readers make the transition to longer books...Crabby and Plankton's attempts at understanding and friendship provide good examples for beginning readers." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Barnacle Is Bored:

"This playful book addresses the universal problem of feeling bored while everyone else appears to be having a great time... Barnacle's round eyes and expressive eyebrows create endearing and silly expressions." -- School Library Journal

"In a mischievous skit of a story, Geisel Award Honoree Fenske (A Pig, a Fox, and a Box) introduces a dyspeptic barnacle for whom the sea grass is always greener-until it isn't... From narration that consists entirely of Barnacle's mopey monologue to a dockside environment defined by creamy blue water, a bit of sand, and a couple planks, Fenske keeps it simple, deploying his closing jokes with confident comic timing." -- Publishers Weekly

"What better protagonist could there be to illustrate boredom than a sedentary barnacle? ... This tale where 'the seaweed is always greener' is an entertaining antidote to boredom." -- Booklist
