"Say bonjour to your new favorite animal, the garden snail!...In Hanson’s soft, cartoonish illustrations, Escargot’s hammy expressions are perfectly in keeping with his gently boastful narrative. Give this charming read-aloud a little extra joie de vivre by reading it in your best French accent." ―Booklist
"A charming little French snail takes center stage as it entices a child to share a meal.It's hard to imagine an escargot heading toward a salad as destined to be anything other than part of the dish, but this engaging snail upends convention...An unusual, tongue-in-cheek aid to getting children to eat a disliked food―even the dreaded carrot."―Kirkus Reviews
"Escargot’s voice is parfait, an airy blend of ego and need masterfully balanced in witty and well-turned sentences that leave plenty of room for audiences to get the joke...Trim, controlled pencil and watercolor art gives Escargot the inevitable French sailor’s shirt, neckerchief, and teeny beret, but the jaunty guy’s wide, sincere eyes reveal the depth of his yearning snail soul―and make for some great comic faces." ―Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

As an aside, I secretly hoped it would encourage my kids to try new foods - I don't know that it did. Maybe that would work for you. But now we point out escargot every time we see it at the grocery store, and it has broadened my children's food saavy and sparked conversations when we watch Master Chef Junior or other cooking shows.
Charming book. Recommend!!! Five stars.
