The story of a walrus and a narwhal, who, with the help of a beluga, discover that being different can be cool!
Ultimately, it's a book that makes it clear it's okay not to fit in with the masses and that once you find your tribe, you'll be ok for things are better when you are not alone.
The pictures were fun, the language was simple for early readers and all in all it was an enjoyable little book that made us smile.
If The Shoe Fits by Deborah Guarino
The story isn't actually about Cinderella herself... It's the tale of Murry - the shoemaker - and his love Mona whose dream is to marry the prince.
The pictures were fun, the story was entertaining and everyone in the house liked this quirky, unconventional, fairytale.
It was wordier than a lot of kid's books so it's definitely one you'll need to read to younger children and the prose has a rhyming rhythm that takes a little getting used to but it worked well at keeping the pace of the story up.
I recommend this for boys and girls alike! It's adorable.
Cherry Blossom and Paper Planes by Jef Aerts and Sanne te Loo
