The sea creatures want Shrimpy to join in their games, but he is too scared. He is scared he would get lost, or squashed, or tangled in a knot playing hopscotch, so all his friends call him WIMPY SHRIMPY. Snail tells him there’s nothing to be afraid of, games are great fun, but still Shrimpy is worried something bad will happen. So when his friends stop asking him to join in, Shrimpy quickly learns the sadness of loneliness. Here comes a beautiful double spread, a vast blue ocean with just a tiny shrimp. This is in such stark contrast to previous pages of brightly coloured pictures, making us pause and consider what might happen. Shrimpy’s terror is clearly portrayed. Once he finds his friends again and watches their happy play, he conquers his fears and joins in. The chant is now, ‘You’re not wimpy, HOORAY for Shrimpy!’ The tough paper will ensure the book is accessible to very young children and its illustrations are bold and cheery throughout.
