Remember the Unicorn Frappuccino?  Unicorn themed items are everywhere.  Kids and adults are having unicorn parties and restaurants have unicorn themed food.  The colors associated with unicorns are very appealing.  Children continue to come  to the library looking for unicorn movies and books.  A touching book to share with your child is Not Quite Narwhal written and illustrated by Jessie Sima.  


Kelp was born under the sea and always assumed he was a narwhal.  One day the current swept Kelp close to land and he saw other creatures that looked very much like him.  Kelp realized he may not be a narwhal after all.  Read about Kelp's adventure and how he handles his big discovery.
