Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea

Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea by Ben Clanton

3.5/5

I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book has 3 short stories (and a song!) that centre around Narwhal the narwhal and his new jellyfish friend.

Narwhal is a crazy optimistic narwhal who, in his travels meets Jelly a serious jellyfish. These complete strangers have only one thing in common. Waffles. These two love waffles, seriously it gets crazy. The two then go on 2 great adventures in the ocean and create a song because what else are you going to do when you create a brand new and awesome friendship?

I only gave this a 3 stars but that doesn’t mean I didn’t love it. I was smiling the entire time I was reading this, it made me very happy.

This is REALLY short, it’s only 64 pages so there’s not really thatmuch to talk about. I just have to say though that this book, although it reads incredibly quickly made me smile for hours after I finished it. Narwhal is just soo optimistic, chuck out your calming colouring books and just read this. It’s a graphic novel so it’s mostly just pictures with roughly 8 words per page give or take. Even though it’s just a childrens grapic novel its so fun. AThis is just a nice, enjoyable read and I seriously recommend it.

As I said before there aren’t too many words so this is good for young kids, even if they are too young to be able to read this by themselves this is a great before bed book. The dialogue between Narwhal and the jellyfish is fun, short and simple (easy for little kids). It’s nice and short, a good book for kids.

The major thing that struck me about this book is Narwhal’s optimism, it was like whiplash. He’s just soo happy all the time and it’s hilarious. Narwhal just wants to be in a pod with all of his friends and eat waffles with his new jellyfish friend.

I can’t wait to see this in stores and see how the physical copy turned out because I read the arc on my kindle and only got to see the pictures in black and white.

Release Date: October 4th 2016
