This is the 4th book in the “A Narwhal and Jelly Book” series. I do not believe I have read any of the others. It is a comic book that follows Narwhal and Jelly – a jelly fish – as they swim through the sea. In this particular book they meet up with an explorer that is an otter. The otter tells them about all of the adventures he has had with other animal and even a mermaid. Narwhal is impressed, but Jelly, not so much. I guess you could say Jelly was… jelly. So Jelly goes off to try and find a new friend since Narwhal is hanging out with the Otter. It turns out that Narwhal and Otter were looking for Jelly the whole time because it just isn’t the same without Jelly on their adventure!
A cute story about how you don’t have to have just one friend and adventures are more fun with all of your friends!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated. This book will be released February 5, 2019 from Penguin Random House Canada.
About the Book
Narwhal and Jelly . . . and Otty?! Exuberant Narwhal and skeptical Jelly test the waters of adding a new friend to their pod when they meet Otty the super-adventurous otter in the fourth book of this blockbuster early graphic novel series!
Dive into three new stories about the joy of adventure and the power of friendship! In the first story, Otty the otter makes her debut splash; while Narwhal greets her with immediate enthusiasm, Jelly’s not so sure about her…mostly because he worries she’ll take his place as Narwhal’s best friend. Readers will easily see why Narwhal’s so excited to meet Otty, a boisterous explorer who even has an aunt who’s a real live sea captain! But readers will also relate to Jelly’s uneasiness seeing his best friend making a new pal.
Jelly tries to work out his jealousy in story two, and in story three, the new trio say “Ahoy, adventure!” and discover they all have more in common than they thought . . . including a love of waffles! Jelly also takes over the “Super Waffle and Strawberry Sidekick” comic providing a sidekick’s-eye-view of defeating the dreaded dEVILed egg!
