'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. When Ben isn't doodling up stories (and often when he is) he likes to cook, explore outdoors, and play basketball. Ben lives in Tacoma, WA with his wife, son and goldendoodle pup.

It is a very funny book because the strawberry smashed the bacon. and he was covered on red. It is a fiction book. I like Wanda. I chose because it is a comic book.

Fun adventures! It was a fiction book and liked Narwhal I would recommend this book to my friends.

This is a brilliant book and it's another great Narwhal and Jelly book. Everybody should read these hilarious comic's. Narwhal is funny and friendly, but Jelly is more of a 'serious' type.

I like all the narwhal books because of the drawings. I also like that the stories are not too long and too short. My favourite character is narwhal because she’s the main character in the book and she’s nice and friendly to everyone.
