Hello. My name is Marcel.

Oh! The only thing more joyful than watching Marcel The Shell With Shoes On is having a copy of his new children’s book. The independent creator~couple Jenny Slate + Dean Fleischer-Camp are my heros.

Jenny is the perfectly cute voice + Dean is the genius filmmaker. Together they make Marcel. Look at him!

The picture book has a very sweet + vibrant style. Their unique idea for using photorealistic oil paintings totally brings Marcel to life. Amazing artwork by Amy Lind!

I finally downloaded the app + was of course, delighted to find these funny, sketchy animations. Then I just pressed play + listened to the best bedtime story ever!
