Today I read the most wonderful news. The "Marcel the Shell with Shoes On" video is being turned into a picture book.
The video, created by SNL cast member Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp, is absolutely hysterical. In the video, Marcel tells us all about his life as a shell, the ups and downs and the routine of his daily life. It is adorable.
In case you haven't seen the video yet, you should watch it now:
According to Publisher's Weekly, the book, to be published by Razorbill, will feature oil paintings based on photos of Marcel. An interactive version of the book and a downloadable digital audio version will also be available.
