Summary

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!

A charming and interactive picture book ideal for picky eaters and animal lovers alike.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Say bonjour to your new favorite animal, the garden snail! Escargot, wearing a chic beret, is very proud of his gastropod features, but he's forlorn that no one picks snails for their favorite creature. While making his way across a picnic toward a tasty salad, the snail makes pleasant conversation with the reader. While we are traveling, we can talk. Tell me, what do you think is my most beautiful part? Over the course of the journey, Escargot makes a powerful case for the value of the common snail, from their slimy trails (more like shimmery trails of . . . shimmery stuff) to their supposedly shy natures (This is the face I make to scare a lion or a wild boar or a carrot that sneaks into my salad!) to their slow pace (A French snail likes to relax). In Hanson's soft, cartoonish illustrations, Escargot's hammy expressions are perfectly in keeping with his gently boastful narrative. Give this charming read-aloud a little extra joie de vivre by reading it in your best French accent.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2017 Booklist"
