He lives with his wife and kids in Seattle, Washington. Ben’s book “Peanut Butter and Jelly” won a Washington State Book Award in 2019!

In this third book of the series, 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.

“Hilarious and charming. The most lovable duo since Frog and Toad.” —NYT-bestselling creator of the Dog Man and Captain Underpants series, Dav Pilkey
