Childrens Book Encourages Embracing what Makes Someone Different

For the most part, Walter is just like other young whales. But what seems to matter most is that Walter was born without a tail. Because he does not have a tail, the other young whales see him as different and to them different is not good. Author Ariana Levin's new children's book, "The Whale Without a Tail" (published by Archway Press), celebrates what makes someone different and how differences can make someone special. Levin is embarking on a marketing campaign to expand the book's reach.

Because Walter is different, he is not included by the other whales in fun and games. He is often teased and called tadpole or turtle. Walter knows better because his tail does all sorts of amazing things, but he is never given a chance to show the others. One day, Walter is the first to realize all his friends have been caught in a fisherman's net. They desperately need his help, and for the first time, they see Walter for the amazing whale he is.

Levin states that "The Whale Without a Tail" is for the many people who have ever felt different or left out and it is to encourage them to proudly stand out. She stresses, "We are trying to become a more inclusive and accepting society. We are celebrating differences and realizing being different doesn't mean being without value."
