Summary

Summary

One thing about a new day--you really never know where it will go, even if you know where it starts.

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.

Booklist Review

For the completely uninitiated, Marcel is the creation of actress and comedienne Jenny Slate (Parks and Recreation) and Dean Fleischer-Camp, whose stop-motion video of Marcel navigating the much larger world around him went viral and was later featured at the Sundance Film Festival. To recap: Marcel is a tiny, shoe-wearing shell who first appeared on the page in Marcel the Shell with Shoes On: Things about Me (2011). This installment furthers Marcel's adventures as he documents the day he got the most surprised. It begins with a cake (I really love cake!) and an unexpected launch from a blanket, which sends Marcel sailing through the air. For the first time, Marcel can see familiar items in their entirety sneakers, a baby, and his grandmother's house and Fleischer-Camp's dreamy oil paintings show the everyday objects from new perspectives. Be warned: this installment may have young Marcel enthusiasts requesting that those reading aloud use Marcel's oddly gravelly baby voice during storytime.--Jones, Courtney Copyright 2014 Booklist
