This book was just plain weird but strangely endearing.

I added another star to my review because this book was wildly popular with my sixth graders. The book and the video are things you have to watch/read over and over again to really appreciate it. It's kind of like Napoleon Dynamite. When you first watch it you're left dumbstruck by how silly and ridiculous it seems, but the more you think back on it, the more you realize how truly hilarious and quotable it really is. That's Marcel the Shell.
