I have PA Tammy to thank for introducing me to one of my favorite YouTube videos of all time: Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. It’s cute, it’s funny, and it speaks to my undying love of anthropomorphized objects. Imagine my absolute glee when I discovered that my favorite video has been made into a children’s book! Marcel the Shell with Shoes On: Things About Me by Jenny Slate (the voice of Marcel) and by Dean Fleisher-Camp (the short film’s director) will be released on Nov. 1 and is likely to be as amazing as the YouTube hit. I can’t wait to introduce my kindergartners to Marcel; he glides on a Dorito, he uses a lentil for a hat, he goes upstate with his buds! What’s not to love?
Pre-order the book on Amazon and have your copy right after it’s released!
