This art looks better than a live action Disney picture.

Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea

The artwork helps to turn this adventure into a full blown story experience for kids. Through the pictures, kids will be able to see what the lush ocean scenes look like, as well as what Narwhal looks like. The scenery and the day to day trials of Narwhal are brought to picturesque life through nearly life-like drawings.  Older kids will especially be able to appreciate the pictures in the book.

Parents and teachers alike will benefit from this amazing story. It is both an entertaining story and a lesson on the causes of addiction. If you have a child, this story can help you open up a conversation about drugs and why it is so important to avoid them.

An easy-reader look at those most popular, if fearsome, fish. Eye-catching illustrations, Petruccio's lemon shark is brilliantly yellow, and his pink goblin shark, determinedly pink.
