A Book by the Brook — Not Quite Narwhal

Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.

— William Shakespeare

Little Kelp isn’t like the other narwhals, being short-tusked and a weaker-swimmer, but eventually he finds land-narwhals just like him. I won’t spoil the revelation in Not Quite NARWHAL written and illustrated by Jessie Sima, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2017. Kelp has to figure out how to reconcile fitting somewhere new while still longing to be home.

Notes: A great picture book for anyone who’s just a little different than the others. Isn’t that all of us? Have a magical week!
