Norman's New Shell

It’s full of big laughs, tasty treats and amazing shaped pages. There’s even a page shaped like an ice cream cone – and a shell to match! First Norman tries out a yellow bath duck. Could this be his new shell? No – the bubbles make him sneeze. What about the round red apple? No – there’s a little worm living in it! The ice cream freezes his back. Brrr! The teapot is too heavy. Will Norman ever find a shell that is just right?
