Whitmore (they/them) voices the titular character, a narwhal who embarks on aquatic adventures with Jelly, a “no-nonsense” jellyfish, in audio adaptations of the first five books of the series. The books, praised as “adorable” and “peppy” by The Children’s Book Review, were created by author and illustrator Ben Clanton, who also provides narration in the audiobooks.
