Cheerful Narwhal likes to make friends with other sea creatures, eat waffles, and have parties. Most young readers will know that narwhals don't really eat waffles, but that's okay. Narwhal makes friends with Jelly, a jellyfish, and in other stories they form their own pod with Shark, Turtle, Blowfish, and Octopus. Elsewhere, Narwhal and Jelly share "the best book ever," in which they "read" the blank pages by creating their own fun stories with their imaginations. Teachers could use that part of the book as a class lesson, asking students to "think about one of your favoritest things in the world." Clanton also provides readers with facts about real narwhals and jellyfish. He uses very simple panel arrangements, soft colors, a doodle-like drawing style, and just enough detail to identify the different characters, so new readers can easily follow along with the story. With easy-to-read panels, a cheery story, and even a few jokes for grown-ups to appreciate, this comical graphic novel will be a crowd-pleaser. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.
