    Under the sea, fish do what fish do: Seahorse hides, Pufferfish puffs up, Parrotfish crunches coral, and Crab . . . bakes cakes? 

         Scallop swims, Dolphin blows bubbles, and . . . Crab bakes cakes. 

         And so life goes on, until one night when everything changes with a splash! 

         In the face of total disaster, can Crab's small, brave act help the community come together and carry on?
