Book Spotlight: PERFECTLY PEGASUS, companion to Jessie Sima’s Not Quite Narwhal, out 3/29!

This spring, Simon & Schuster is publishing Jessie Sima’s eagerly-anticipated companion to the bestselling Not Quite NarwhalPERFECTLY PEGASUS (3/29/22)! Not Quite Narwhal has become a beloved read for thousands of children since it was published in 2017. So much so, that not only was it a New York Times bestseller, it’s also being adapted into a television series with DreamWorks and Netflix!

In this gorgeous companion picture book, readers will meet Nimbus, who has always lived among the clouds. She’s a pegasus, after all, and the sky is where she belongs. She is one of a kind. And when she wants a friend, all she has to do is look up—and talk to the stars. Only…they don’t really talk back. The clouds don’t, either. And sometimes, being the only pegasus can be a little…lonely? So she decides to find a fallen star to make a wish on—and wishes for friends who are just like her. Along the way she meets a Unicorn named Kelp, and a host of other creatures…who might just open her eyes to something other than what’s up in the sky.

Like Jessie’s previous books, PERFECTLY PEGASUS has that magical combination of humor and heart that’s made Jessie so tremendously popular. With gentle spirit and affirmation, this stunning read is attentive to the feelings of its young readers, delivering a story that is joyful and uplifting.

This truly is a beautiful children’s book with a delightful story and amazing illustrations! I highly recommend it!
