Crab must save Snail from Evil Eel’s curse in their third unforgettable seaside adventure in the graphic early reader series by New York Times bestselling author Beth Ferry and illustrator Jared Chapman.

The Evil Eel is so evil that making narwhals cry is one of her favorite hobbies. So evil in fact that just one sting turns friendly, sweet Snail into…Snevil!!!! Complete with a black cape, Snevil sets out to destroy everything in her path, including Crab. In order to save himself—and his best friend—Crab must become a hero. Will he be able to stop evil from destroying the splash zone before it's too late?

Crab and Snail are everyone’s new favorite characters in the graphic early reader space. Fans of Narwhal & Jelly and Beak & Ally will love these quirky characters and clever stories.
