Walrus's Gift is a simple and gentle story about a complex and difficult concern—the problem of bullying. The gift of the walrus child is his example of friendship and kindness. His behavior will encourage children to be more aware of their own behavior and realize how it affects others. This story beautifully illustrates the possibilities of sharing. Walrus's Gift is an appealing tale with playful illustrations and an important message.
