HASH(0x9ed5d900) out of 5 stars Long awaited sequel does not disappoint Nov. 14 2014
By C. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
While this book no longer features the funny, scrawly handwritten font, as the first book does, it's a bit longer with more text to read. The even better news is, with more pages, comes MORE ART. And the art, once again, is awe-inspiring. Our family is still in love with Marcel.
HASH(0x9ed5db4c) out of 5 stars Love Marcel. The book disappoints. Jan. 9 2015
By Lady S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered both books for my six year old granddaughter for Christmas. We watched the You Tube videos online, which had the whole family laughing. However, the pictures in the books are not sharp and lack the punch to keep us interested. They did change the font in this second book so she can read it, but save your money and watch the videos.
HASH(0x9ed5db10) out of 5 stars Marcel’s cheerful spirit and big heart Oct. 23 2014
By Helpful Advice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
‘Marcel the Shell’ made by Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp is second installment in series which introduced charming shell with shoes named Marcel to the children book world as well.

Although the story of Marcel and his video clip which became mega popular on Internet is surely already known by everyone, it was interesting to see how picture book will look that for the main character has creature that we have not been accustomed seeing as a hero.

The answer is simple - it is equally entertaining, in Marcel’s adventures will enjoy young children, but easily will laugh adults as well. Marcel will be caught in many different situations, though he won’t give up. Using what is available for him, and mostly his cheerful spirit and big heart, Marcel will succeed in everything he does.

Adding to above mentioned nicely done illustrations, second installment in Marcel’s series is a book that can be recommended for children, especially for his youngest fans all around the world.

Cute book. Preferred the "handwritten" style of the first book.
