ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Chadwick the Crab is getting married, and everyone is preparing for the big event! Esmerelda is choosing her bridesmaids. Baron von Heron is writing the ceremony (in rhyme, of course). Toulouse, the gourmet goose, is baking the cake. Chadwick has convinced some friends at the Baltimore aquarium to come.
Then Chadwick begins to question whether he is really ready for marriage. While he’s having second thoughts, everything goes haywire: Bernie the Sea Gull can’t find a tuxedo that fits. Toulouse’s arrival from Canada is delayed by strong head winds, and, as if all that weren’t bad enough, Esmerelda disappears! Suddenly, the wedding is off and the search is on. Only then does Chadwick realize how much he loves the prettiest girl crab in all of Shady Creek.
