About this title


Introduce young naturalists to the mysterious high tide of the horseshoe crabs.

One June night, under the full moon, Daniel's mother wakes him up to see the extraordinary sight of horseshoe crabs spawning on the beach-just as they have every spring for 350 million years. In the morning, Daniel returns to find one lone crab, marooned upside down in the sand. Is it dead? Can he save it? Like a perfect weekend at the beach, CRAB MOON leaves an indelible memory of a special adventure between a parent and a child. And with luminous paintings by Kate Kiesler, it relays a powerful message that each of us must do our part to preserve even earth's oldest creatures.

About the Author:

Ruth Horowitz is "drawn to species that get overlooked because they're not big-eyed or cuddly or cute. I hope this book will show readers the rewards of reaching out to a being that may seem utterly alien at first glance."

Kate Kiesler makes her home in the mountains but enjoyed painting the seashore. "On a snowy day I could walk into my studio and be at the beach. Sometimes I could almost smell the salty air."
