Books by this Artist
What happens when an adventurous hermit crab from Folly Beach, South Carolina, gets scooped up by a shrimp trawler? He goes shrimping! In Hermy's third book, he also makes new friends and learns about the operations of a commercial shrimping vessel. With map and glossary.
Based on the author’s experience growing up in coastal South Carolina, Hermy the Hermit Crab and the Sea Turtle Rescue takes children along for a fun adventure—and a conservation lesson—as a helpful crustacean guides a group of sea turtle hatchlings to the ocean.
While growing up in Charleston Harbor, Hermy sees the wonderful sights of historic Charleston. This beautifully illustrated children's book invites you to travel along with Hermy on his very first adventure! With map and glossary.
