Opinion

From Library Staff

Growing up in the ocean, Kelp has always assumed that he was a narwhal like the rest of his family. But, he's always been a little bit different.

This book doubles up on the amazing creatures with a little unicorn named Kelp who is born under the sea and cared for by a group of narwhals. Children will learn a magical lesson about accepting others’ differences.

This picture book with chubbily adorable illustrations is a wonderful addition to the genre about not fitting in and being yourself. Kelp was born in the sea, but he isn't a good swimmer and doesn't like the food that narwhals eat. Swept close to land by a current, he sees creatures that look lik... Read More »

This is rapidly becoming one of my storytime go-to's! It has everything I love to share with kiddos -- a sense of humor, bright and engaging illustrations, interesting vocabulary and concepts (we always have a fun and sometimes silly conversation beforehand asking if anyone knows what a narwhal is), and a sweet message about community and unconditional love.

I read this as often as I possibly can in my storytimes! And also to myself ;)

It has great illustrations, both cute and pretty. I like the colorful fish added in with the narwhals. There is a great distinguishing of land narwhals and sea unicorns and I like the description of that. The main character goes on this adventure to find who they are and comes to except both past and present situations and finds a way to keep them both and both sets of friends.

As a lover of unicorns as a child, I can honestly say this is one of my favourite kids books. Very imaginative and great for little girls.

SQUEE! A book with narwhals and unicorns? SIGN ME UP! Plus you can’t see it here, but IT HAS SPARKLES GUYS! Kelp the Narwhal (cough… unicorn… cough) is just trying to find his place in the world. He knows he doesn’t fit in with his narwhal buddies, but when he views a strange creature on land, he realizes he might not be the narwhal he thinks he is. Swoonworthy illustrations with an excellent message, I highly suggest this adorable book.
