Does a Fiddler Crab Fiddle?

July 26th at Museum of Natural History
Storytime with co-authors Artemis Roehrig and Corrine Demas at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History

BREWSTER, MA — The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History presents Artemis Roehrig and Corinne Demas co-authors of Does a Fiddler Crab Fiddle? Thursday, July 26, 2018   at 10:30am.

Meet the dynamic mother/daughter duo, Artemis Roehrig and Corrine Demas reading from their fun and fascinating book, Does a Fiddler Crab Fiddle?

No! But fiddler crabs sure do some amazing things! Starting with silly questions like the title and moving on through increasingly unlikely questions such as “do fiddler crabs ride a skateboard?” and “do fiddler crabs eat pizza?” children discover what fiddler crabs do. They don’t need a skateboard – they can move sideways so shore birds can’t catch them. They may not enjoy pizza, but they gobble up saltmarsh muck.

Using this question-and-answer format engages children immediately and discovering just what fiddler crabs actually do satisfies their curiosity. This is the best kind of nonfiction – engaging, fun, and filled with the kinds of details that kids love.


Corinne Demas and Artemis Roehrig are co-authors of Do Doodlebugs Doodle? Amazing Insect Facts, illustrated by Ellen Shi, Does a Fiddler Crab Fiddle? illustrated by John Sandford and the forthcoming Do Jellyfish Like Peanut Butter?  (Persnickety Press/Cornell Lab Ornithological Publishing Group). The mother-daughter writing team is also the authors of Are Pirates Polite? illustrated by David Catrow, and the forthcoming The Grumpy Pirate, illustrated by Ashlyn Anstee (Scholastic).
