Thoughtful, whimsical picture books for all ages.
Noah the Narwhal A Tale of Downs and Ups
Written by Judith Klausner Illustrated by Sarah Gould
Meet Noah. Noah the Narwhal has good days, when he is productive and social, and pain days, when he needs to rest. His friends and family can find it difficult to handle the unpredictability, but in the end they realize that having Noah in their lives is absolutely worth it! For the people in our lives - young and old - whose brains work a little differently. Noah the Narwhal is here to remind us (and the people who love us) that being valued and loved are just as constant as any chronic condition.
About the Author Judith Klausner is a migrainey land mammal from Somerville, Massachusetts. She channels her experience of invisible disability (and everything else) into her creative endeavors. She often makes art using unusual materials from her surroundings and plays with her food both recreationally and professionally. When not creating works of art, she likes to throw fancy dress tea parties. Seeing a lack of characters like herself in picture books, Judith set to work contributing to filling this void, and she hopes that Noah will help other disabled folks of all ages feel less isolated.
About the Illustrator Sarah is a designer of many things, including games, landscapes, stories, and art. She has grand ambitions to make the world a better place by creating occasionally useful things, but she mostly spends her time noodling, doodling, and trying to understand the full weirdness of human beings.
