"Hanson’s illustrations are warm and inviting, making Escargot the cuddliest snail ever . . . a fun interactive book that will have readers practicing their own over-the-top French accent." ―School Library Journal
"Lovely and lovable through and through, A Book for Escargot will be a favorite. The book is a must for home, classroom, and public library collections. And on’t miss the original, Escargot.

PS: this book is enjoyed even more when read aloud with a French accent. :)
The illustrations are precious, and the story line is so cute. Who knew we could fall in love with a snail?
I also donated a copy of this and the sequel to our local library so more people can enjoy them.
