I've been asked a number of times how the rest of the JELLY JOLT song goes . . . and I was curious too. So I asked Justin Huertas (who had done some super fun musical adaptations of Narwhal and Jelly in the past) if he might be willing to give it a go. Here is the result! Along with some stills from the book and time-lapse drawings. Sting! Sting! You're lightning!

"Chock-full of spudtacular puns and a feel-good surprise ending, Clanton offers a delightful laugh-on-every-page early chapter book for kids ready to tackle longer stories but with very simple text and visual context clues. The graphic novel elements interspersed throughout the standard illustrated text will hold great appeal for young readers." -- Booklist ― November 1, 2022
"Comically emphatic dialogue, wry narrator commentary, and raucous mixed-media cartooning—including potato stamps—depicts the one-spudmanship. ...Extending his impressive track record of funny geniality, Clanton renders the characters with earnest expressions" -- Publisher's Weekly ― October 10, 2022
"Just as silly and ­appealing as Narwhal and Jelly....An excellent addition where early reader graphic novels are popular (that is, ­everywhere)" -- School Library Journal ―
