I came across Escargot’s second book (A Book for Escargot) and fell in love with this charming, funny snail. I immediately searched for a plush version and was happily surprised to find one here! In these lonely pandemic days, I needed this bit of joy in my life. I refer to Escargot as my emotional support snail. LOL. He is adorable and very well made. I may eventually gift him to a niece or nephew (or maybe not). I will probably give the book to a friend with kids (I prefer the second book anyway). I also like that snails symbolize the importance of slowing down, which I fully believe in! I also fully believe in adults enjoying children’s books—we need the simple, important messages in picture books just as much as kids do!
