Series: Narwhal and Jelly #6
Author/Artist: Ben Clanton
Publisher: Tundra Books
Released: September 7th, 2021
Narwhal and Jelly are back for another fantastic adventure in Narwhal’s School of Awesomeness. This is the sixth novel in the collection, and I sincerely cannot recommend this series enough.
Written and illustrated by Ben Clanton, Narwhal’s School of Awesomeness sends Narwhal and Jelly off on a new adventure – the adventure of teaching. No, really! They’re becoming substitute teachers, and it is every bit as adorable and hilarious as you might imagine.
While this whole series has always been marketed towards kids (leaving room for adults to enjoy it, of course), I feel like Narwhal’s School of Awesomeness is especially relevant for young readers. After all, the focus is something they can very much identify with – school! Yet this school is arguably more entertaining than the land counterpart, as lessons revolve around things such as wafflematics, scavenger hunts, and more.
The thing I love the most about this series is how joyful the characters are. They are always genuinely happy to see one another. It’s contagious and will leave any reader feeling happier just for having picked up their book.
Thanks to Tundra Books and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
