"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 .

It was funny but pretty boring.

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
