CHARACTER COUNTS: Super Narwhal and Jelly Jolt
Super Narwhal and Jelly Jolt
By Ben Clanton
Tundra Books, 2017. Comics, 64 p.
In this sequel to Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea (that I reviewed here) Narwhal decides to be a superhero. When talking to Jelly the duo tries to figure out just what Narwhal’s super power would be…but they aren’t quite sure. With a lot of persistence (and waffles) Narwhal is finally able to figure out what his SUPER power is…and it is pretty great (and demonstrates how kind and considerate Narwhal is). .
This is a pretty great book. I like how just being themselves is an important part of being a superhero (or a sidekick). And there is the added bonus of the “Super Sea Creatures” section that tells some amazing facts of sea creatures. Plus there is a second bonus of a comic that has to do with waffles (the favorite thing to eat of Super Narwhal and Jelly Jolt). With great characters, fun illustrations in a comic format, and a good story this book is sure to make kiddos who like superheroes, comedy, or sea creatures happy.
