A happy-go-lucky, waffle-loving narwhal and a cynical, no-nonsense jellyfish forge an unlikely friendship and share adventures while exploring the ocean together.
Narwhal is a happy-go-lucky narwhal. Jelly is a no-nonsense jellyfish. The two might not have a lot in common, but they do they love waffles, parties and adventures. Join Narwhal and Jelly as they discover the whole wide ocean together. A wonderfully silly early graphic novel series featuring three stories. In the first, Jelly learns that Narwhal is a really good friend. Then Narwhal and Jelly form their own pod of awesomeness with their ocean friends. And finally, Narwhal and Jelly read the best book ever -- even though it doesn't have any words...or pictures! Ben Clanton showcases the joys of friendship, the benefits of working together and the power of imagination in the delightful Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea. --

The silly tale of everybody's favorite horn-having oceanic mammal and their favorite jellyfish friend.

I loved this book! It's awesome and "Podtastic"! I suggest serving this book with a side of waffles and a Narwhal horn (or unicorn horn) from a party store, along with some books on real narwhals, jellyfish, sharks, sea monkeys, etc.
Definitely have waffles as snack with this storytime!

It sure is cute. I don't understand the waffle fixation, but the illustrations are pretty darn adorable, and Jelly at least is pretty cool. Narwhal is...a little too ditzy for my tastes, being an underwater Winnie-the-Pooh without the sarcasm, but that's okay. It's still cute.

Adorably quirky and absurd. Perfectly fun. Wonderfully illustrated. It only takes 5-10 minutes to read this cross between a graphic novel, picture book, and early reader.

I enjoyed Narwhal:Unicorn of the Sea because it is definitely humorous, and very. super. duper. CUUUUUUUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I enjoyed every single page, to the point where I was probably annoying the people around me because I kept talking about it and showing off the illustrations.

Humorous graphic novel about a Narwhal and a jellyfish

Super cute and funny, with real appeal beyond the younger set. I highly recommend reading and enjoying this one aloud!

Definitely a novel for younger kids since there not a lot of text, but it looked so cute that I had to read it. It's full of cheesy little puns and the drawings are really well done. It’s little stories about a waffle-loving narwhale and his best friend, a jellyfish. Can't wait to read the others when they come out. Rating 5 out of 5

This was a TERRIBLE BEDTIME BOOK because we were all laughing so much. Just when we were snuggled in together and calming down, BAM! we would turn the page and be surprised by more hilarity.

Highly recommended daytime reading. :)
