Once upon a time, there was a supersized crab called Crabby. Crabby was walking sideways along the beach looking for his family and bumped into a lobster called Lobby.
Crabby asked Lobby, “have you seen my family, they were washed away into the ocean by a piece of plastic”. Lobby replied, “no I haven’t seen your family, but I will help you try to find them”. Lobby wanted to help Crabby because he lost his family too, they were captured in a crab trap by Joe the Grumpy Fisherman and taken away forever.
Lobby and Crabby decide to go into the ocean to start searching for Crabby’s family, they started by following the trail of plastic. Along the way they meet King Crab, who is ten times bigger than Crabby. King Crab wears a gold crown with diamonds that he stole from Joe the Grumpy Fisherman’s ship. Joe had fished the crown out of the water in a net along with King Crab, who then pinched Joe on the bottom, grabbed the crown and jumped back into the water.
King Crab tells Crabby he knows where his family are, but he will only tell them if Crabby wins a rap battle against the gangster sharks gang. They are called The Laois Library Gangsta Sharks and wear leather jackets, sunglasses, and snapbacks.
Lobby and Crabby are a little scared, but Crabby goes first with a rap called “The Crab attack”. The Laois Library Gangsta Sharks rap a funky “Baby Shark” and they win! Then King Crab offers them the ultimate arm-wrestling challenge between Lobby the Lobster and Harry the Piranha. Lobby the Lobster wins because he has huge pinchers and Harry the Piranha only has fins, also you can’t bite in a wrestling challenge. Finally, King Crab tells them where they need to go, Seagull Island!
When they get to Seagull Island, they see Joe the Fisherman and he has Lobby’s family in a crab cage…
