“Aside from the fact that Escargot is simply adorable, this book weaves in enough interaction points to keep a wiggly toddler’s attention and enough humor to keep the adults laughing, making it really engaging in all the ways a great book should be. If you can read it in a French accent, then it’s even better.”
— Lisa Francisco, Second Star to the Right Children's Books, Denver, CO

Description


In A Book for Escargot, the standalone sequel to Escargot--written by award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author Dashka Slater and illustrated by Sydney Hanson--we follow a funny and charming French snail through a library to find the book of his dreams.

Bonjour!
It is moi, Escargot, your favorite French snail.
Today I am going on a trip to the library, where there are so many stories to choose from!
Stories about dog superheroes…
guinea pig detectives....
and flamingo astronauts.

But sadly, none of these books is about a daring snail hero who saves the day. What is that you say? Perhaps this is the book about the snail hero? Ooh-la-la!

Fun, crazy, and mysterious characters make the characters storng and full of secrets. An exciting read! Great for everyone 14 and up. Kaitlyn R., customer age 14
