Reviews - What do customers think about Pagoo?

Wonderful book!  Jun 2, 2007
I bought this book after reading other Holling C. Holling books. The book is wonderful! The pictures are good and the story is excellent. What I love about Mr. Holling's books is that they can be used multi-level. Even my 3yo was interested in learning about Pagoo the Hermit Crab.
This is fantastic classic for nature lovers  Apr 28, 2007
I first read this book when I was in graduate school. I was so excited about it that I gave it as a gift to several children and my biology professor. The story, the biology and the artwork all worked together to make this a sheer pleasure to read and share.
I read this book several times as a child.  Sep 30, 2002
I loved Pagoo as a child and have just read it to my two boys. It is a wonderful story of a little hermit crab and his adventures while growing up in a tide pool by the sea.The illustrations are beautiful. A must for any young reader interested in ocean life.
Still wonderful after all these years  Sep 13, 2002
I read this book in elementary school and went looking for it again last year as a gift for a niece. The story is wonderful and little Pagoo is a really lovable character. But there's also a lot of fascinating natural detail. And stunning illustrations. It's a children's book version of a top-notch Nature documentary. "Nova" in print, if you will. Also check out Holling Clancy Holling's other books. They're all great, even looking back at them after three decades.
Still holds up after 30 years....  Sep 4, 2001
I remember my 4th grade teacher read this to a group of restless, bored kids, that is until we all (well, most of us) became enthralled by Pagoo. I suddenly remembered this title 30 years after being introduced to it by my teacher at Francis Scott Key Elementary School in San Francisco in 1972, Mrs. Marjorie Parkhurst. My 6-year old daughter is currently fascinated by sea creatures (as I was at her age), tide pools and such, and recently acquired a pet Hermit Crab after relentlessly hounding me for one. I'm sure she'll enjoy it as much as I did. If not, well, then I'll have to look up Mrs. Parkhurst and blame her for being a much better storyteller than I am! ;)
