by Lynette Reilly

illustrated by

line

Micky is a soldier crab. The story of his meeting with the Fiddler Crabs, and discovering the music of the beach, is told in rhymed verse:

	His name was really Mycteris
	But Micky was his choice.
	A soldier crab in blue and grey, 
	He marched to Sergeant's voice.
	
Illustrations are full colour plates in bright watercolours, depicting a quiet beach environment with seagulls, sand castles, upturned boats - and a mangrove swamp hiding the fiddler crab band.

Written by a biologist and bird-watcher, this book will please those who believe in giving children information about the real world, woven into story, told in verse.

A delightful story for reading aloud to pre-schoolers or for independent reading by 6-8 year-olds.
