'It's time to go swapping,' Sherman's mum tells him. But finding the right shell is not easy. Sherman wants one that's spiky and cool and big enough to fit the pebble collection he keeps at the bottom of his shell. And Mum wants a sensible shell for her young hermit crab. If they can find a good swap, she'll buy him a plankton shake at the Urchin Express. Luckily, Sherman finds a shell to protect him from the inquisitive visitor to the rock pools who scoops him up for a closer look. Of course, as Sherman points out when he lands safely back in the sea, if Mum had let him have anemones to cover his shell . . .
