BUYING ADVISORY: EL (K-3) –ADVISABLE
AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH
Sophie knows everything about unicorns, it seems almost anything can be a unicorn; her fish, her dog, her brother, her dolls, and more. She has to protect them, they are messy, and they can even lose their horns. Features big bright illustrations.
This is a fantastic book with a surprise twist that I don’t want to spoil. It makes me very curious how long a child (or group of children) would take to catch onto it. The appeal of the topic and bright cover are very high, as unicorns are incredibly popular right now. The illustrations are fun and ready to be shared with a group.
