New “Marcel the Shell” Book: The Most Surprised I’ve Ever Been

by Mariana Garces

Do you love Marcel the Shell, the adorable stop motion animated talking shell? Have you missed him since his last video? Good news! Our tiny friend is back with a new children’s book The Most Surprised I’ve Ever Been, out today, October 21, on Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers Group.

“Marcel The Shell With Shoes On” first appeared in 2010 thanks to writer/comedian/actress Jenny Slate, who voiced the character, and her husband, writer/director Dean Fleischer-Camp. Their first video together went viral, and ever since then we’ve been impatiently waiting  for another. Now, you can see the latest installment and pick up The Most Surprised I’ve Ever Been, written by Slate and Fleischer-Camp, for yourself or the curious kids in your life, available online here

BUST was also lucky enough to get the exclusive spread reveal from the new book so that we can share it with you first!
