Not Quite Narwhal is ridiculously cute (just look at him!) but beyond the sweet illustrations is a thoughtful and humorous book that celebrates difference, and explores finding your place when you’re caught between two worlds.
Born in the ocean and raised by a family of Narwhals, ‘Kelp’ always knew he was a little different but when he discovers why, he finds himself caught between two worlds. How can he choose between his narwhal family in the sea and his unicorn family on the land? Does he have to?
This is author/illustrator Jessie Sima’s debut picture book, and looks set to become a family favourite.
