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 short stories and a super fun ocean fact page – and joke page too!
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!
Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea! is the first book in a series about a Narwhal and his friend Jelly the Jellyfish, plus some of their other friends too. In this first book, we get to witness Narwhal and Jelly meeting for the first time.
Because neither of them has ever seen an animal like the other before they both think that the other is imaginary, therefore they try to make the other prove that they are real, it is very funny.
This book contains three stories as well as a double-sided information page about Narwhals and Jellyfish. Bit of information for you – Did you know that a group of Jellyfish is called a Smack? Well, I didn’t.
The book is highly amusing. I love that Narwhal is always so upbeat. He is proud of how he looks and that he is a Narwhal. He also has an excellent imagination too. Jellyfish is more reserved but is learning to be a bit more free and imaginative with Narwhals help.
I think the story about the best book ever was my favourite, as Narwhal teaches Jelly to see beyond the pages and to make up its own story.
The book may be only 64 pages long but I giggled my way through it, as a result I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and I can see children becoming engrossed in the story. If you want to witness a Narwhal having parties, eating waffles and even using the internet, then buy a copy of this book now. Because this book was so good I now can’t wait to start on book two ‘Super Narwhal and Jelly Jolt’ – Gosh I really am a big kid!
