As Pagoo molted he is shown in different stages of development, looking like a young crawfish in the early stage and later more like a hermit crab in search of a home(sea shell). Pagoo's travels took him through a mussel land and after meeting up with barnacles and a starfish he found room and board on the back of a lady hermit crab whose barnacles provided a home for Pagoo!
After being swallowed by a fish and chased by a seagull Pagoo found a shell and had a narrow escape from a huge octopus! Finally Pagoo mated with a female hermit crab and afterwards she had many eggs to start the lifecycle again! PAGOO is a lovely, fasinating book! I'm glad I found it on amazon.com after I had lost it many years ago! Glad to get it in hardcover, complete with full colour slip cover! Highly recommended!!
Another Holling Clancy Holling book my kids loved was Paddle to the Sea. My child (age 10) said to me when I paused a little too long between pages "play the movie!" she was so into it. Such rich writing and enjoyable fun learning about geography.
