Happy-go-lucky Narwhal and no-nonsense Jelly find their inner superheroes in three new under-the-sea adventures. In the first story, Narwhal reveals his superhero alter-ego and enlists Jelly to help him figure out what his superpower is. Next, Narwhal uses his superpower to help a friend find his way back home. In the third story, Jelly is feeling blue and Narwhal comes to the rescue. Ben Clanton showcases the joys of friendship and the power of believing in yourself and others through this irresistible duo.
The incredible duo of Narwhal and Jelly is back in another heart-warming book filled with humorous and memorable adventures!
Indeed, Narwhal suddenly decides to become a superhero – Super Narwhal! – with Jelly as his super sidekick – Jelly Jolt! Together, they will right wrongs and save the sea.
… As soon as Super Narwhal discovers his superhero powers, that is. Jelly Jolt knows his already (as we all), but what can Narwhal do that makes him super? He must find out.
Another feel-good story by Ben Clanton. You know, this book is somewhat self-aware of its happy-go-luckiness and adorableness from the way the characters, especially Narwhal, speak but that’s a huge part of its charm.
Indeed, these sea creatures are always so positive, with Narwhal as being the leader in this area, because he knows he is AWESOME and is cheerful with everyone at all times. Jelly has his moments, but being next to Narwhal brings out the best in him.
I love, love, love. Hopefully the next book will not be the last.
