A Unicorn Named Sparkle
Written & illustrated by Amy Young
Thoughts from The Goodfather
Sparkle the Unicorn is not your average unicorn, and that's what makes this story so fun. Sometimes love grows over time, and something that doesn't initially seem like what you wanted grows on you.
board book
Recommend Ages: 2-6

When Lucy sees an ad in the newspaper for a unicorn, she sends in her twenty-five cents and waits four to six long weeks for her very own unicorn to arrive. She imagines the flowers that she’ll braid into his beautiful pink mane, and she even picks the perfect name for him: Sparkle. But when Sparkle arrives, his ears are too long, his horn is too short, he smells funny—and oh, he has fleas. Lucy isn’t pleased, but in the end she warms up to Sparkle and realizes that even though he wasn’t exactly the unicorn she wanted, he might be just the one she needs.
