A Dog Named Crab - Story Writing Challenge


Crab isn’t a person or an actual crab – he’s a dog (the only dog that appears in Shakespeare’s plays). But there's lots that we don't know about him.

Children's author Nicola Davies invites you to tell Crab's story in this fun creative writing challenge!

Where did he come from?
Who did he belong to?
Why did Will put him in the play? 

Think about these questions and more as you put your imagination to the test.
