A Narwhal and Jelly book Book 5 Happy Narwhalidays (A Narwhal and Jelly book, Book 5) - Ben Clanton (Paperback) 03-09-2020
'Hilarious and charming' - Dav Pilkey, bestselling author of Dogman and Captain Underpants The 5th hilarious and fabulously festive Christmas adventure from everyone's favourite characters - Narwhal and Jelly! It's Christmas in the world wide waters! Narwhal is spreading his trademark good cheer and warm waffles, but also news of the amazing Merry Mermicorn, part mermaid, part unicorn. Jelly isn't feeling the festive spirit - or excitement about the mermicorn - quite as much until he receives a mysterious present ... But who is it from? A wonderfully silly early graphic novel series featuring three short stories and a super fun ocean fact page - and joke page too! The perfect first book for young readers, just moving on from picture books, discovering the joys of friendship, working together and the power of imagination. 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 clamour 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 Ben Clanton is the author/illustrator of the NARWHAL AND JELLY early graphic novel series as well as IT CAME IN THE MAIL, VOTE FOR ME!, and REX WRECKS IT.
