What's Escargot About

Publisher 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.

Such a darling, fun book! Along with the fun of talking about Escargot and racing to the salad at the end of the book, this has a great message of trying something new (like carrots) that you don’t think you’ll like, but end up loving. Plus, you’ll learn a little French vocabulary along the way!
