Not Quite Narwhal - a sweet picture book about identity, and belonging, that I wish had been read to me when I was a little kid

Not Quite Narwhal by Jessie Sima

Kelp doesn't mind being a little different from the other narwhals. But when a strong current carried him away, Kelp encounters some mysterious, sparking creatures who leave him wondering if maybe... just maybe... he isn't a NARWHAL at all.

The illustrations! The Narwhals! The Unicorns! And most of all, the main character, Kelp, and how the whole story is suffused with a joyous sense of love and acceptance... It's pretty magical.

Here's a fun book trailer:

This book is so adorable and sells so well at our store. Have you seen the author's other book, Harriet Gets Carried Away? Harriet has two dads!
