AN INDIE BESTSELLER â A cute French snail searches for the book of his dreams in this laugh-out-loud second picture book in the bestselling Escargot series.
Bonjour! Escargot is going on a trip to the library, where there are so many stories to choose from. Sadly, none of these tales are about daring—and adorable—snail heroes who save the day. But when Escargot asks you for help creating a fabulous story of his own, perhaps this could become just the book he’s been looking for.
From New York Times–bestselling author Dashka Slater and former Pixar animator Sydney Hanson, A Book for Escargot is an irresistibly sweet and charming story that subtly teaches kids how to write their own magnifique story. This hilarious and interactive addition to the award-winning Escargot series is the ideal read aloud for story time and animal lovers alike.
