Escargot is a beautiful French snail, so magnifique! But for all his confidence, Escargot is a little hurt that no one ever claims snails as their favorite animal. As he sets out across a picnic table in pursuit of a beautiful salad ("with croutons and a light vinaigrette and absolutely no carrots"), the charismatic little mollusk makes a delightfully charming argument on behalf of loving snails. Along the way, he invites young readers to participate in his quest, from blowing kisses to speed races to being very, very brave when a dreaded carrot appears in his beautiful salad. Kids will adore this big-hearted tale…especially once they join in the fun with their very own 9" Escargot Plush! For ages 3 and up. Book (US8742) and plush (US8762) sold separately.
