This book was just a bit too creepy for us. A shell with one eye and shoes? Not something I will ever read to my kids again and honestly they didn't like it either.

Hilariously quirky! I think I know little kids exactly like Marcel! My boys clapped at the end of the book - it is so funny and cute. Make sure to find the little videos on YouTube!!! One note - while the cursive font adds to feel of the story - it is very difficult for children learning to read to try and follow along.

Both my 4 year old daughter and I loved reading this book. She thought the funniest part of the book was when he talked about his "breadroom" and went to "bread" at the end. Hope there will be another Marcel the Shell book written soon!

This book is endearing and funny in its own right, but is best paired with the infamous YouTube video of Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. A silly, fun read.
