TIP TAP Went the Crab is a bold and beautiful introduction to numbers and counting by Tim Hopgood, creator of the bestselling WOW! Said the Owl.

When a curious little crab tip-taps out of her rock pool to explore the big blue sea, she discovers a world full of wonderful creatures. But after she's counted everything from one noisy seagull to nine silent sharks, the little crab soon realizes that her very own rock pool is the most amazing place of all. She tip-taps happily home . . . closely followed by her ten baby crabs!

Preschoolers will love joining in with the TIP TAPs in this board book and a final activity spread about counting makes this book perfect for sharing at story time.
