They become friends with a little girl and a seagull, and the four of them work together to try to get Ramon home safely, but when that doesn’t work, they get creative.

Sample text:

On the morning after the big storm, 
Pinchy Crab walked out onto the beach. 


He looked around.

It was very quiet, 
But something didn’t seem quite right. 


Out of the corner of his eye, 
Pinchy saw something move. 

It was small 
and dark, 
and it was stuck under an old fishing net. 


“HELP!” the thing said. 


“It figures,” said Pinchy. 
“Somebody is always trying to be smarter than the storm.”

“Help me…” the thing gasped.

“I’m coming,” said Pinchy. 
“Every time there is a big storm, 
somebody wants to ride the big waves. 
You always end up in trouble.”


Pinchy looked into the fishing net. 
“Are you okay?” he asked.

There was no reply.

Pinchy was not sure what to do.
