Marcel the Shell Series : Titles in Order

Book 2
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.
Book 1

Join little Marcel the Shell with shoes and a big heart on his first picture book adventure! From the brilliant minds of comedian and actress Jenny Slate and writer and director Dean Fleischer-Camp comes the utterly charming, impossibly small, lovable mollusk marvel.

Beloved online sensation, classic picture book character and now the star of a major motion picture, Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence. He wears a lentil as a hat and hang-glides on a Dorito, and though he may be small, he knows he has a lot of good qualities like his pretty awesome imagination.

Marcel’s millions of fans and young readers can learn more about this adorable creature and his wonderfully peculiar world in his literary debut.
