One thing about a new day - you really never know where it will go, even if you know where it starts.

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is walking on the blanket when he is unexpectedly launched high into the air. Tumbling through space, the bird's-eye view offers our small friend not only a glimpse of the important things in life - his beloved Nana who sleeps in a fancy French bread, a stinky shoe, and a monstrous baby - but also a much bigger picture. Sometimes the most wonderful discoveries are the ones we least expect.

It subsequently became a viral sensation, garnering over twenty million views on YouTube. Their first picture book, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On: Things About Me, is a New York Times bestseller.
