Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea (A Narwhal and Jelly Book #1) (Paperback)
“Hilarious and charming. The most lovable duo since Frog and Toad.” —NYT-bestselling creator of the Dog Man and Captain Underpants series, Dav Pilkey
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.

PRAISE FOR Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea:
“Undersea adventures have never been so darn cute .... The incessant charm and unabashed joy should make this an easy sell. Swimmingly delightful and a guaranteed smile-maker.” --Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
“An utterly enchanting start to a series that’s bound to be popular among young readers.” --Starred Review, School Library Journal
“Geez, Narwhal and Jellyfish are adorable. There’s no other word as appropriate for this duo… readers will likely clamor for the next outing.” –-Starred Review, Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Bantering dialogue entertains throughout, but the book’s best moment might belong to the third story, when Narwhal lends Jelly his “favourite book in the whole wide water, which is blank...“. "It’s an imagination book, Jelly!” Narwhal explains. Readers ready for underwater goofiness of the non-SpongeBob variety will be eager for more adventures from this duo.” --Publishers Weekly
