Marcel the Shell with Shoes On: Things About Me

By Penguin Group USA

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Meet Marcel, a Shell. He has shoes and a face, and friends and a whole life. It’s not exactly like your life or mine, so that is what this app is about. That is what it’s all about.

Discover all the fun in Marcel’s world with this interactive reading experience that’s bright, smart, and full of adventure. Jenny Slate narrates as the voice of Marcel and each page unfolds to reveal the really big world of this very small shell. Get a tour of Marcel’s breadroom (yes, he sleeps on a piece of bread), tap to ride on the whirling salad spinner, tilt the screen to pilot Marcel’s parachute and scroll through to meet his pet Alan.

People say Marcel’s head is too big for his body, but his response is: compared to what? Marcel may be tiny but he has a big heart! So jump right in and discover everything this shell with shoes can do!

For iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad

Customer Reviews

Marcel Rocks but what's with the voice?

App works fine and the voice of Marcel is passable but does not have the same energy as the videos--doesn't even really sound like the same person. This has to be better than the hardbound book, though, and it does have a few animations.

We love marcel

The voice is so totally perfect. We have the book and loved it so much we bought the app. Love love love. Write more marcel books, please!

I'm still in love with marceL!

Unfortunately the app/book version is disappointing compared with the utube. I was happy to contribute tho to the cause as the 2 utubes have given me much pleasure!!!!!! Stick to the animated video is my advice to the wonderful creators of marcel!
