Dive into three new stories about Narwhal's favorite time of the year! It's the festive season in the world wide waters, and Narwhal is looking forward to cozying up with a good book, singing and partying with his pod pals and enjoying some warm waffle pudding. But most of all he's excited about the arrival of the Merry Mermicorn! According to Narwhal, she's part mermaid, part unicorn and completely mer-aculous! Jelly is of course skeptical about the existence of the "Mira-Miny-What-A Corn"... even when he receives a mysterious present. It must be from Narwhal!
PACEY PACKER UNICORN TRACKER GN #1
Pacey's little sister, Mina, has always said her stuffed unicorn, Slasher, is real-but seriously? He's a stuffed toy! Then again, he does seem to be leading Mina outside her room and to... some kind of weird magical unicorn land? Pacey may not believe in unicorns, but she's not about to let her little sister be kidnapped, so she does the only thing she can: follows them to unicorn land (that she totally does NOT believe in). And for the record, it's NOTHING like the stories. It's not Pacey's fault he's trapped in a ridiculous stuffed body. Pacey will just be grabbing Mina and taking her home, that is, if she can work with the grumpiest unicorn stuffy ever to outsmart the Evil Alpha Unicorn and find the way out!
PEANUT BUTTER & CRACKERS YR GN #1
Crackers is a rescue dog who's a bit on the nervous side, but pretty comfy at home with Butter, a very plump cat who, like all cats, is all about himself. The two pets have a good life: big backyard, nice couch, good eats, and an owner who goes to work every day so they can pretty much do what they want. Enter Peanut, a brand-new puppy with big floppy ears, unabashed energy, and no appreciation for the quiet life. The little dog is a chowhound who dips into everybody's food bowl. He drools, he chews up stuff, he doesn't get how stairs work, and he's afraid of the dark. Butter and Crackers have had it! This puppy has to go! But when the backyard gate is left open (the cat's idea, of course!) and Peanut wanders out and gets lost, the older animals remember what it was like to be alone lonely. Butter and Crackers to the rescue!
SHARK AND BOT YR GN #1
A shark and a robot are unlikely friends. But in this hilarious young graphic novel series, what makes you different makes for an epic friendship. It might not seem like Shark and Bot have much in common. Shark has some very sharp teeth and Bot has a saw for an arm. Who would have thought these two could become best friends? They can't even shake hands! But friendship is surprisingly easy when you are both a little awkward, love comics, and want to have some fun. But not everyone is so friendly. What will these new pals do when some meanies don't want to share the playground?
