Super Narwhal and Jelly Jolt
In the second book in the Narwhal series by Ben Clanton, Narwhal has decided that he wants to be a superhero. He has the costume, the secret identity, and even the best superhero side-kick – Jelly Jolt. However, he doesn’t know what his superhero power is.
This is just the first of four stories in the wonderful kid’s book filled to the brim with amusing moments and amazing illustrations. In the second story, Narwhal finds a star on a rock and is ...more
Cute, funny and very heartwarming. I would say it is a great introduction to graphic novels for kids 6 years old and up.
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
These two are not unlike Frog and Toad or Heart and Brain or Snail and Worm: Three Stories About Two Friends. There's the impulsive, fun one and the logical, more down-to-earth (or down to ocean bottom, I suppose) one. One worries more and the other is spontaneous. It's a common friendship model, by now, ...more
I was super disappointed the formatting was off on my kindle for this little cutie but I still enjoyed the illustrations and the adorable story.
If I had the little kiddos still I would be purchasing all the Narwhal stories for our kiddo library.
Since my 14 year old is a complete stick in the mud, I will just have to wait for friends to have new little beasties so I can live vicariously through them.
Super Narwhal is the optimistic cheerleader everyone needs in their life! This book will prove that you don't need superpowers in order to be a superhero. Sometimes the hero you need is a friend who will listen to you and cheer you up when you're blue.
The simple text and illustrations are paired with beautifully subdued colors that allow the reader to focus on the (surprisingly) expressive characters as they ...more
Totally cute and bold drawings accompany this simple and somewhat silly story with a heartwarming end.
Narwhal and Jelly are on a mission to channeling their inner superheroes! This is the perfect pick-me-up for anyone looking for something quick, cute, and heartwarming. As our duo figure out what they need to do to become superheroes, I found myself smiling at their conversations. I also fell in love with the illustrations in this book! I'm definitely keeping an eye out for Ben ...more
I may be slightly biased because I'm fond of narwhals, but this graphic novel about said narwhal and his jellyfish friend is soo cute! There are three mini stories, plus a few pages of interesting facts about sea creatures, that I can see appealing to anyone from ages 5 to 110. What turns out to be Narwhal's superpower? You have to read to find out!
There is one odd episode in this, in which Narwhal attempts to shoot a star back into the sky using octopus's cannon.... Anyone want to talk about it?
In the second book of this graphic novel series, Narwhal and Jelly decide to become super heroes! But, you can’t just become a super hero. One needs a super cool outfit, a super cool name, and most importantly, a super cool super power. Narwhal tries to be invisible, but it doesn't work. He tries to be super strong, and even tries to fly (under the sea), but he doesn't have those super powers either. What is something Narwhal has that is pretty super? Find out with the help of his super...more
(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review through Library Thing's Earlier Reviewers program.)
In the second installment of Ben Clanton's Narwhal and Jelly series, our favorite unicorn of the sea has been bitten by the superhero bug. Narwhal has decided that he, too, wants to be a superhero. He's got a superhero name (Super Narwhal), a flashy costume (yellow cape), a sidekick (Jelly Jolt), and a secret identity (Clark Parker Wayne) ... but no superpowers to speak ...more
I received a copy of this book from Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review.
A sequel to Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea this picture book follows the 2 best friends as they work to become superheroes. While Narwhal has his outfit and super identity figured out he doesn’t know what his power is unfortunately. Featuring some fun facts about creatures of the sea this book is a ton of fun and super ...more
I'll be real honest, I freaking love these Narwhal and Jellyfish books: They're super cute, drawn really well, include some interesting factoids, and are pure fluff. I was incredibly excited to see that another book in the series is coming out at some point next year, this time involving Narwhal and Jellyfish's first forays into superhero-dome. This one has ...more
In between ...more
Oh my goodness this is adorable. The color palette is rich yet simplistic, and the characters are very sweet. I was drawn to this series because I love narwhals. And why do I love narwhals? Because of Verne's 20,000 Leagues. So imagine my delight when Narwhal said his relative's name was Nautilus the Narwhal... *squee!* I also loved Narwhal's secret identity, Clark Parker Wayne. *nerdy giggle*
Over all, a very fun story about friendship, having fun, and helping others to achieve their ...more
I was so excited to see a new Narwhal book available, as I reviewed the first a few months ago and was totally enchanted. The new installment is no exception, and continues to be a super (no pun intended) cute book for readers of all ages. Chock full of endearing story and fun facts, the book follows the adventures of the enthusiastic Narwhal and his buddy, a jellyfish ...more
