I love Lisa Mantchev’s work. She is on a very short list of authors that automatically go on my To Be Read pile. When she started writing books for younger children, I was excited. I have younger children and I could finally introduce them to one of my favorite author’s work. Strictly No Elephants was brilliant. It is a favorite in our house. When Someday, Narwhal was announced, I knew it would make its way to our shelf. I ordered it for Christmas this year and, before I wrapped it, I read it. And, I loved it. If anyone loved Strictly No Elephants, I absolutely, completely, 100% recommend Someday, Narwhal. I can’t wait for my kids to open it on Christmas morning and I will be sure to share my kids reviews of the book after the new year.
Stay awesome ♡ Christa
In this charming companion to the award-winning picture book Strictly No Elephants, a tiny narwhal discovers that sometimes the difference between staying home and a big adventure is a group of loving friends.
Red front door. Potted plant. Umbrella stand. Piano. Red front door. Potted plant. Umbrella stand. Piano.
That’s what the world looks like from inside Tiny Narwhal’s fishbowl. It’s not very exciting. She dreams of the world beyond: endless blue sky, tall buildings, a bridge. But Tiny Narwhal hasn’t any feet and doesn’t know the street names. And what if it’s cold outside?
What this little narwhal does have, though, are good friends. With the help of her boy and his friends, plus a penguin, bat, and giraffe, Tiny Narwhal finally feels brave enough to go on an adventure.
Someday, Narwhal features the same adorable cast of pets and sweet, lyrical language as Lisa Mantchev’s beloved Strictly No Elephants.
