Jenny Slate Marcel The Shell
November 16, 2011 by staff
Jenny Slate Marcel The Shell, Marcel the Shell, who won the hearts of the millions who made “Marcel the Shell With Shoes On” a viral sensation last year, is back by popular demand. Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp, Marcel’s creators, have published a Marcel book and released a sequel to the YouTube short; a Marcel TV show could also be on the way.
“Marcel the Shell with Shoes On: Things About Me,” is a beautifully illustrated picture book that follows a day in the life of the miniscule mollusk and enjoys the view of a typical human habitat through his eyes. “I often visit the aquarium,” he says of a small fishbowl. “It’s the only place where you’re allowed to stare. Sometimes you really do need to get a good look at things.”
As in the film, Marcel’s winningly pragmatic musings can have an undertone of sadness, yet you never find yourself pitying the one-eyed shell.
Jenny and Dean — who were recently engaged — have been on a whirlwind book tour since “Marcel the Shell With Shoes on: Things About Me” was published by Razorbill earlier this month. They wrapped it up in New York City this week, with an appearance at the Soho Apple store Wednesday evening.
