Staff Reviews

Sweet little Escargot, the French snail that only wants to be your favorite animal! And perhaps a little kiss? Magnifique! I had fun reading this to my storytime kids, especially with the subtly interactive parts (blow on Escargot to cool him down after sprinting across a table). Charming!

— Robin at Santa Clara


Bonjour Escargot is a beautiful French snail who wants only two things:

1. To be your favorite animal.
2. To get to the delicious salad at the end of the book.

But when he gets to the salad, he discovers that there's a carrot in it. And Escargot hates carrots. But when he finally tries one--with a little help from you --he discovers that it's not so bad after all
