Product Details


“(A)musing and full of action… the introduction of a rare mammal makes for a(n) original twist on the silly picture book.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Our bespectacled young heroine would like you to know that the mess in the kitchen is not at all her doing, but rather a narwhal’s—the creatures do love to make pie, after all. [A] narwhal listens, utterly aghast at the accusations. The ending is a twist on a twist and a double subversion of expectations, giving the already absurd story more gleeful goofiness. The digital illustrations are carefully chaotic, with the mess in question fully taking up the background in subdued tones of gold and ochre. [T]he back and forth dialogue between girl and narwhal could make for some excellent readers theater, particularly if it is followed up with some delicious pie.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
