       Additional Information  
      Periwinkle is a hermit crab who lives on the beach, and his world is large -- it is the same world that we live in. His adventures take him to summer camp and to the nation's capital - they take place in his hometown, and in the memories handed down from crab to crab by storytelling. Summer camp provides real-life experiences for Periwinkle that he can pass on. The book presents to children that all of creation is precious, even a tiny hermit crab. Periwinkle's adventures are about children and their imaginations. They're about remembering wise sayings from our parents and other adult role models in our lives. Periwinkle's adventures are opportunities to relive our childhood days and let our imaginations soar. The Adventures of Periwinkle the Crab is not just for children. It is for anyone who still dreams.
