Marcel the Shell: The Most Surprised I've Ever Been Marcel the Shell: The Most Surprised I've Ever Been

30% Off:
$18.99 $13.29

Jenny Slate & Dean Fleischer-Camp

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is walking on the blanket when he is unexpectedly launched high into the air. Tumbling through space, the bird's-eye view offers our small friend not only a glimpse of the important things in life—his beloved Nana who sleeps in a fancy French bread, a stinky shoe, and a monstrous baby—but also a much bigger picture. Sometimes the most wonderful discoveries are the ones we least expect.

Marcel the Shell With Shoes On

30% Off:
$18.99 $13.29

Jenny Slate & Dean Fleischer-Camp Slate, an actress, and Fleischer-Camp, a director, wisely expand Marcel’s world beyond the three-and-half minutes of their video, though they hang onto some of its most beloved lines. The artwork trades the jerky animation of the original for Lind’s thick, luminous oil paintings, which provide a fittingly off-kilter realism; when readers first get a (very) close-up view of Marcel through a magnifying glass, his mouth agape and single goggle-eye gleaming, it’s clear that this is not your average protagonist.

Sara Farizan

High-school junior Leila has made it most of the way through Armstead Academy without having a crush on anyone, which is something of a relief. Her Persian heritage already makes her different from her classmates; if word got out that she liked girls, life would be twice as hard. But when a sophisticated, beautiful new girl, Saskia, shows up, Leila starts to take risks she never thought she would, especially when it looks as if the attraction between them is mutual.
