Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea!

by Dawn S | Nov 07, 2016
Comic books with factual content sometimes seem like a mean trick by grown-ups to get information into young brains on the sly. This book is not like that!
Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea by Ben Clanton is a fun romp with two sea creatures who become friends.

On their first meeting, Jellyfish and Narwhal aren't sure the other is a real animal. Jellyfish says "Look...things like you don't exist. I mean what is up with that horn?" The conversation just gets funner from there. Turns out they both like waffles and parties. After this silly introduction we get some great facts about narwhals and jellyfish, maybe to help prove that they are real sea creatures?

Of the several chapters, the one about the Imagination Book is probably my favorite. Jellyfish meets Narwhal one day while he's reading his favorite book. Narwhal is happy to share it with Jellyfish, but there's a little explaining to do when Jellyfish discovers that the book is just made of blank pages.

According to the last page there may be more Narwhal and Jellyfish adventures to come, like Super Narwhal and Jelly Jolt. I can't wait!
