Lobster comes up with a successful plan to earn the money needed to buy a pair of sunglasses for his pal, Willis, by James Marshall, which was originally published in 1974. Lobster puts his motto ""Everyone is good for something. And you will always be good at what you like to do most"" into action with a talent show of all Willis's friends; Marshall's palette of pink, yellow, green and black shows them all at their best.
