Kelp was born under the sea but he isn't like the other narwhals. He really isn't a very good swimmer but no one seems to mind. One day, he gets swept up in a strong current and surfaces to see a vision on a cliff, something that looks remarkably like him. Slowly but surely he swims his way to land to find Land Narwhals, aka Unicorns. He soon discovers that he is also a unicorn and learns all of the unicorn ways. He seems happy but really begins to miss his family in the sea. Is there a way for Kelp to have it all?
A lovely story about finding your place, being brave enough to embrace your differences, and finding a way to meet in the middle. The gorgeous illustrations make every page of this story frameworthy.
