In this story, Narwhal has some serious dietary issues. Jelly tries to help but only makes things worse. On the upside, Jelly now has a nickname, one that I share.

What a cute book. I adore the Narwal and Jellyfish characters. This book tackles picky eaters who will not even try a new food. It teaches them to try it in a cute way that would make any child tempted. The Illustrations are adorable !

Peanut Butter and Jelly is the third book in the Narwhal and Jelly series and what a series it is. It will make you laugh-out-loud and giggle uncontrollably.

In book three there are four stories, three about Narwhal and his friend Jelly the Jellyfish and one the continuation of their superhero story – ‘Super Waffle and Strawberry Sidekick’.

The book has been beautifully illustrated and all the stories are amazing. Amongst the stories you will also find factual information, I never knew that Tiger

Ahoy there mateys! I be the first to admit that I am not really a graphic novel or comics person. While I like art, I do not have a visual mind at all. For example, me film friends laugh good-naturedly at me all the time when when I watch tv or movies with them because I miss the visual cues of storytelling. This means the tv or movie must be paused so the can explain the plot points I literally didn’t see. I need words! Dialogue! Something! But the First Mate and I had donated books to a local ...more

3.5 stars. Narwhal does not do things by halves. Whether it's waffles, peanut butter, or names. Jelly introduces Narwhal to peanut butter, and that sets Narwhal off on a peanut butter kick.
These two friends are cute together, and though this book didn't have me laughing out loud like book 2, I still found this installment amusing.
This is the third in a series by Ben Clanton featuring a very cute narwhal and jellyfish. Set up graphic-novel style, this is easy reading, suitable for young elementary-age readers. I was mildly amused by this little tale of a narwhal who loves eating waffles to the exclusion of all other foods until the jellyfish introduces him to peanut butter; however, I wasn’t impressed by it. Because of how insubstantial and uninspired this is, I got the feeling Clanton was milking a cash cow. The story ...more

My 8 yr old read this to me last night. It is very silly in all of the best ways!

I received this as an ARC ebook. That did not sway my opinion at all, I already loved Narwhal and Jelly. :)

This is the third book in the Narwhal and Jelly series of graphic novels. To give you an idea of grade level, the first book in the series was around a Guided Reading level M which makes it an end of 2nd grade beginning of 3rd grade level book for an average reader.

If you aren't familiar with this series, these are some of the cutest juvenile graphic novels you'll run into. This third

These books are so cute! I still like the second one the best but this one is great. Great for all age groups and interests. Especially good if you have a child who is a picky eater.

*This review was verbally created by an 8-year-old boy, and transcribed by me*

I really liked that Narwhal is all about waffles, and Jelly tried to get him to try a peanut butter cookie. Then that’s all Narwhal cared about, jars of peanut butter.

I like the front cover where Narwhal was x’ed out and the title renamed to Peanut Butter and Jelly!

I like that the beginning pages* have Narwhal and the end pages* have Jelly!

Eww, sea cucumbers eat poop!

For months, a young friend of mine has been begging me to read a Narwhal and Jelly book. He laughs so hard just thinking about the series that I had to give it a try.

Now I see why he loves that goofy Narwhal soooooo much. That wacky whale is just right to appeal to a young reader's sense of fun. Even at my advanced age, I loved the absurdity, the hyperbole and the illustrations and the friendship between Narwhal and Jelly. I also loved the way that Clanton snuck in a few sea-facts amidst the

Loved the font,
loved the images,
loved the mini comic in the middle of the book,
loved Narwhal and Jelly (both very lovable),
loved the page of facts halfway through,
loved that the facts were given in a fun and memorable way,
Overall - ridiculously adorable, a slam dunk of a series!
Loved it!

Still funny and adorable. Narwhal and Jelly's conversation about all the foods Narwhal hasn't tried is sure to entertain readers of all ages. Narwhal's obsession with the peanut butter was delightful and there were several fun surprises. Readers of the first two installments won't be disappointed.

In which Jelly convinces Narwhal to try a peanut butter cookie. As expected, Narwhal takes things to the extreme.

Judging by how much my 5-year-old laughed at this, it must be the funniest book in history.

Advance Reading Copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

Still cute and nonsensical, though probably a little less value than previous volumes. It was silly, but not as endearing as I thought it would be, as the first two were. There were less values in it, less "be yourself" messages. A bit of a miss for me, though still cute and wonderfully illustrated.

Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader.

Narwhal Peanut Butter and Jelly by Ben Clanton from Penguin Random House Canada, is book 3 in this cute graphic series which is due out 27 March, 2018. The art is super simple and adorable.

It's a short book, 64 pages, with 2 small stories, a mini-comic 'by Narwhal Peanut Butter and Jelly Floyd', and a 2 page spread with facts about sea creatures great and small from blue whales to sea cucumbers. There is also a useful table of contents in the

So I actually first spotted this book August 7th (and took a picture of it to remember), and then took another picture of it 9 days later. I actually read it at work some point before now; I wish I remembered if it was when I took the second picture Aug 16th or not. I also wish I'd recorded somewhere what I thought about it the first time...

But anyway, I just read it again and I'm recording it this time! 4 stars because it was cute enough to get my attention multiple times, and I'm pretty sure

Narwhal, a quirky, carefree narwhal and Jelly, a cautious, skeptic jellyfish are back again but on a culinary adventure. The unlikely duo are trying out new foods – and names! – at the whim of Narwhal and to the chagrin of Jelly.

This is my seven-year-old’s new favorite series. After reading this installment, she immediately turned to me and said “Mommy, read this – it’s so silly!” And I did. And she was spot on. We laughed out loud at the witty banter between Narwhal and Jelly, marveled at the

This series is just so much fun. It’s simple, but that is its beauty. Apparently Narwhal has never eaten anything but waffles. And Jelly has a peanut butter cookie. It takes some convincing, but when Narwhal finally gets his first bite, he is hooked. And an addict is made. This book isn't just fun, “it’s fintastic”.

Quick, easy, and cute - this easy reading graphic novel continues to be smart and funny. This is the third volume of Narwhal and Jelly. The story in this one feels a little lighter than the past two volumes, but it holds up as a funny, silly situational comic. Definitely looking forward to future adventures from Narwhal and Jelly.

Such a cute book. Every adult should read a kids book occasionally. And what better than a book about Narwhals and PB!

Narwhal, ahem, "Peanut Butter" and Jelly are still adorable and silly, but this title was a little lighter on storyline than the first book.
