“Hilarious and charming. The most lovable duo since Frog and Toad.” —NYT-bestselling creator of the Dog Man and Captain Underpants series, Dav Pilkey
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!

A new Narwhal and Jelly book! My 10 year old son was very excited. He really has enjoyed this series. It's cute, and silly. I like how it has a few facts about otters and jellyfish. And that they talk about jealousy in friendships. If your BFF makes a new friend, how does that make you feel? My son said it was great, but too short. I think he's starting to get a little too old for these. Very cute read, perfect for the younger crowd.
The Narhwal and Jelly books are so much fun! They’re a quick read, but very enjoyable. In this story, Narwhal meets Otter the explorer. They become friends and plan an adventure together. However, Jelly feels left out. He is suspicious of Otter. He tries to find other friends to play with, but in the end he goes back to his best friend, Narwhal. This book was full of puns. They were very funny. There was a birthday “shellabration” for a turtle. The famous snail explorer Captain Goodhart had the motto “Seas the day.” I couldn’t help but laugh at all of the puns. I love this book! If you’re looking for a funny read, you should check this one out. I received a copy of this book from the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I know this isn’t what I usually review on my blog. But technically it could be considered fantasy right? There are mermaids and unicorns in it soooo… I knew I had to pick this book when I saw it on Netgalley for a couple of reasons. My daughter (10 years old) and her friends at school love this series. My daughter’s favorite animal is a Sea Otter. I was excited to show her this new book and she loved it. It features the adorable illustrations we come to expect from this series, and is as wonderfully joyous as earlier installments. It’s a lovely little book. Narwhal meets a new sea otter friend who is an exceptional adventurer. This makes Jelly a little jealous. Jelly feels a little like a third wheel once Otter shows up, but there is room for all of them in the sea. I also like that they include a few facts about Otters in the book. They are fascinating little animals. It’s easy to see why my daughter loves them so much. If you’re looking for cute books to read to your kids, or a fun graphic book for older elementary aged kids, then this is a good series to pick up. Especially if you are partial to sea creatures.
