Overview

Chadwick is a happy Chesapeake Bay blue crab who enjoys a wide circle of friends—quiet Orville Oyster, Matilda (a fussy, near-sighted egret), Toulouse the French Canada Goose, Bernie the Sea Gull, and especially Esmerelda, the prettiest girl crab in the entire Bay. But Chadwick yearns for adventure and decides that more than anything else he wants to be a star at the aquarium in Baltimore. This is the story of how one little crab realizes a very big dream.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
“Move aside, Babar, Paddington, Pooh-Bear…make room for Chadwick.” —Attraction
