“In nearly every poem, there is at least one universal truth about adolescence, family, gender, race, religion, or sexuality that will have readers either nodding in grateful acknowledgment or blinking away tears. “ - The Horn Book, STARRED
"Nelson crafts a breezy, food-focused read that teaches valuable lessons about working hard for the things and people you love." -- School Library Journal
Bonjour! Do you know the most beautiful animal, Escargot, the French snail? If you do not, you should, mon ami!
So many readers have come to love Escargot that his first book, which came out last year, is now in its 7th printing! C'est magnifique, oui?
It is no surprise, then, that Escargot's creator, Dashka Slater, is going to bring a new Escargot story to readers, along with illustrator Sydney Hanson and Farrar, Straus, & Giroux's Joy Peskin. This time, Escargot will look for himself in the library! You can look for him, too, starting in spring 2020.
