"A Super Scary Narwhalloween" by Ben Clanton is part of the Narwhal and Jelly book series. Narwhal is fun-loving and Jelly is curious. In this story, Narwhal can't pick a Halloween costume, and Jelly gets a bit scared and wants to hide until the celebration is over. Despite their differences, Narwhal and Jelly are best friends in these graphic novels for younger readers. The book is full of humor and adorable illustrations that kids will love as they follow the adventures of these two delightful characters.

Thanks to Netgalley and Tundra Books for the ARC of this!

This is my beginning reader’s favorite series to read together, he loves to each read one character. This was SO FUNNY and sweet, and we liked the animal facts.

I love the latest installment of Narwhal and Jelly. Super fun that the cover of the book glows in the dark. I love the creativity of Narwhals costumes before he decides on what to wear while Jelly is scared of what is swimming around. My students love all the adventures and this is sure to be a staple in the library as well.

Narwhal and Jelly are amazing characters. I love the series and this book doesn't disappoint. It's great how Clanton seamlessly adds cool facts in between the chapters. Our students adore this series. We were even able to purchase one with a Glow-in-the-Dark cover!! I can't wait for the next installment.

I had a great time reading this book. Narwhal is looking forward to dressing up for Halloween, but Jelly isn’t as excited about it. They would rather just hide somewhere until the holiday is over. Yet when something terrible happens to Narwhal, it is up to Jelly to save them. With the help of some super friends, they will take on a powerful foe. Yet as this story comes to a close, we see someone’s mood about this holiday change forever.

This is the perfect Halloween book for kids unsure about the scary parts of Halloween. Just the right amount of spookiness with all the humour you expect from Narwhal and Jelly. This book will appeal to kids of a wide range of ages and even includes some neat facts.

Halloween is coming!

Narwhal is super excited about wearing a costume, and we get to see a myriad of his choices. (Best fashion show EVER!) Jelly, however, doesn't like the scary stuff, though in the end, he'll always come through for his friend.

Filled with fun, gags, friendship, and undersea facts, this series just gets better and better.

Kids love Halloween and they love reading Narwhal and Jelly books so this is another home run for Ben Clanton.

My Godson, who is not a big reader, loves this series and is excited to pick up A Superscary Narwhalloween this weekend. So thank you Mr.Canton.

“A Super Scary Narwhalloween“ by Ben Clinton is book number eight in the Narwhal and Jelly series of great graphic novels for young readers.

It’s close to Halloween under the sea and Narwhal is super excited. His friend Jelly not so much. When a scary sea monster shows up and swallows Narwhal it’s up to Jelly and their friends to get their courage to help him and to save Halloween.

I love this series of books, and this one is another great entry. It certainly includes stuff from previous novels like superheroes and waffles. The illustrations are fun.

Narwhal and Jelly are at it again! I really enjoy this series - especially how the author is able to incorporate science facts amongst the fun and silliness.

Narwhal loves Halloween but Jelly isn't so sure. There are a lot of scary costumes and he's just not on board. But when word comes that there's a terrifying monster and it might have gotten Narwhal, Jelly is ready to come to the rescue. He superfies himself and their friends and sets out to save his friend.
Adorable as always but could have been a little longer.

Narwhal and Jelly are back! In this adventure, they are trying to figure out what to be for Halloween. Narwhal has lots of ideas and costumes, while Jelly finds Halloween scary. When a monster shows up, its up to Jelly and their other friends to help Narwhal.

Every book in this series is just so cute. There are strong themes of friendship and kindness that everyone can learn from, especially kids. Can't wait to see what they get in to next!

Happy Pub Day to the newest Narwhal and Jelly book by @benclantoon: ‘A Super Scary Narwhalloween’ - and yes, the cover glows in the dark! What kid won’t love that?!?

My eight-year-old son adores these books, and this one lives up to the laugh-out-loud silliness he’s come to expect, waffle jokes and all. He’s surpassed the reading level of these books, but continues to return to them over and over again - Narwhal and Jelly are just the perfect comedic duo. Thanks, Ben Clanton, for instilling a love of reading in so many children.

⁉️What comedic duo to you recall from your childhood? I grew up watching Rocky and Bullwinkle with my dad, and of course I loved Pinkie and the Brain!

Narwhal and Jelly are back, raising all kinds of shenanigans in this fun, Halloween-based book.
Narwhal works to make Jelly a little less afraid of things [all while trying to decide on what to be for Halloween] and when a threat comes to his friend, Jelly [and friends] have to learn to be brave to help the one they love so much.

Great illustrations, a really fun story [interspersed with fun facts], and a great ending, this is a great book for littles about bravery, friendship [and what we do for those we love] and the total fun of Halloween [and WAFFLES!!! ;-) ].

Well done.

Narwhal and Jelly dive into the magic of Halloween in this endearing graphic novel. It's all about costumes and courage and adventures with friends. And delicious waffles.

What a great addition to the series! Our friend Narwhal is obsessed with costumes and Halloween and it's Jelly's turn to lead the adventure. He discovers which costume will help him brave the Monster. Just a sense of tension that ends in delight for readers who may identify more with Jelly than Narwhal.
