Squiggles & Scribbles by Ben Clanton
Peanut Butter and Jelly (Penguin Random House )
U District store


Come to the book launch party! Favorite local author-illustrator Ben Clanton shares the latest installment of his delightful Narwhal and Jelly series, Peanut Butter and Jelly.
Narwhal and Jelly are back and Narwhal has a new obsession peanut butter! He's so obsessed he even wants to change his name tothat's right Peanut Butter! Ever-sensible Jelly isn't so sure that's the best idea, but is all for Narwhal trying new things (instead of just eating waffles all the time, no matter how delicious waffles are).
In this third book, 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.

Today was my first time in the store, my daughter got a gift card for Christmas,and oh my goodness it was Husky Heaven! I loved the little coffee shop with the marshmallow whipped cream for my hot cho...colate! I love that there is a little bit of Seattle in this store! Will definitely be back to shop. See More

Best place around to shop for books. Great bookseller's as well. Can't find the book you are looking for? Ask any of the booksellers and they can make a recommendation of something in stock or help y...ou order a book. See More

I love the University book store - when I need a book for the niece/nephews but don't know what to get, the Children's dept staff always have great suggestions.

I love the "Shelf Awareness" emails that I get from the University Bookstore! The short but in-depth reviews help me pick winning books consistently. I love that all age groups are addressed too, so I... can find great books for my family as well as for myself. U Bookstore beats the big online bookstores in terms of consistently delivering enticing book information to my inbox. Thanks! See More

This is one of THE best venues for a book event, or just for browsing the collections. The wonderful journals and book goodies make me crazy, I want to buy everything.

Well, I think I posted in the wrong place a minute ago, but will copy/paste to here: Thank you for an easy shopping experience! I located two hard-to-find books for my son on the website and ordered ...them. The site was very easy to use (ability to search by ISBN is awesome!) and even though I did encounter a glitch, a quick e-mail to staff was all it took to get me going again. Thanks again! See More

Amazing customer service! I will honestly say that they have my business for a long time just for the extra mile they were willing to go to get me the item I really wanted. Thank you!

Always great just to go to the bookstore. But this time, I attended SCBWI's Insider edition and it was so much fun.

I love University Book Store for its great author signing events. They also have one of the most comprehensive Fantasy/SF sections in town.

I have been going to this bookstore for twenty years now. I love the used books and also all the specials. I also really appreciate the opportunity to go to readings - what a great way to spend an evening...

Duane, who runs the fantasy section, is fantastic. Incredibly knowledgeable about what's out there, and he's great at putting together events.

WORST customer service ever. EXTREMELY STUPID return policies. I lost my clicker and needed a new one. On Amazon I can get them for $16 but I figured I would support my university book store. In the s...tore it costs $40 with tax. Later that day I found my clicker and tried to return the one I had bought. They wouldn't let me return it because it apparently is a "textbook" and can't be returned past a certain day each quarter, even if it is unopened. This is the MOST STUPID policy ever. Any other sane bookstore would give you a 30 day return period, and the stuff at this bookstore is overpriced anyways. They offered to buy it back for $17. I was flabbergasted to say the least. I had bought it the same day, it was unopened. They just treat customers like trash. No customer service whatsoever. Go elsewhere for your textbook/school supply needs. You'll find cheaper prices and better customer service, and a store that doesn't rip off its customers. I will never buy ANYTHING from them again, and I suggest you don't either. Overpriced and overrated. See More

Just had an opportunity to order an out-of-stock book from the website--probably the best online ordering system I've ever used. Plus I love this bookstore!

I applied for and was approved for my very first credit card at the U. Book Store back in 1965. i've loved the place ever since. Never have I gone there looking for something specific and not gotten... what I needed. See More

I rent a textbook last quarter and I returned it before the due date. But after more than 1 month, today, suddenely charged $26.03. I can't understand. Why I should pay for that?
