I saw this book on display at my library and snatched it up. Sure, the videos were cute and odd, but how would that make for a children's book?
Both of my sons enjoyed this book. The 8 year old gets the odd humor. He also likes reading the cursive. The 3 year old likes pointing out what Marcel is doing even if he doesn't get why Marcel thinks playing is a soup ladle is fun.
Our favorite part? Going to bread. Both boys giggled over this and it became a nightly joke. "I'm going to bread! I'm in my breadroom going to bread!!" A bonus: The book may work as a before bed story because it ends with Marcel going to bed and asking the reader to close the book. Another of Marcel's great qualities.
