Narwhal's obsession with their new favorite food leads them into hijinks and hilarity in the third book of this all-star early graphic novel series, adapted for audio!
Narwhal and Jelly are back and Narwhal has a new obsession . . . peanut butter! Narwhal is so obsessed they even wants to change their name to . . . that's right . . . Peanut Butter! Ever-sensible Jelly isn't so sure that's the best idea, but is all for Narwhal trying new things (instead of just eating waffles all the time, no matter how delicious waffles are).
In this third audiobook, Narwhal and Jelly star in three new stories about trying new things, favorite foods and accepting who we are. Always funny and never didactic, this underwater duo charms again through their powerful combination of positive thinking, imagination and joyfulness.

Gr 1–4—With the help of his anxious jellyfish pal, goofy Narwhal expands his gastronomic horizons in this latest entry in the series. When Jelly discovers that Narwhal's diet consists solely of waffles, he encourages his friend to try a peanut butter cookie. Impressed, Narwhal eats so much peanut butter that he turns yellowish brown, much to Jelly's consternation. All the successful elements of the previous titles are on display: adorably childlike illustrations, absurdist humor, puns galore, and an emphasis on friendship. Clanton divides the book up into several digestible segments, including two pages of brief sea creature facts and a tale penned by Narwhal and Jelly starring their long-running superhero characters Super Waffle and Strawberry Sidekick. Relying on a simple text, the author/illustrator presents yet another tale brimming with whimsy and joy. VERDICT For all juvenile graphic novel collections, especially where the series is popular.—Mahnaz Dar, School Library Journal
