What's Uni the Unicorn About

Publisher Summary

Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s New York Times bestselling story of friendship, unicorns, and the power of believing!

Uni is just like all the other unicorns . . . except for one thing: she believes that little girls are REAL. This magical story by Amy Krouse Rosenthal (author of I Wish You More) illuminates Uni’s not-so-fantastical dream and celebrates the sparkle of believing.

Uni the unicorn is told there’s no such thing as little girls! But no matter what the grown-up unicorns say, Uni believes that little girls are REAL. Somewhere there must be a smart, strong, wonderful, magical little girl waiting to be best friends. In fact, far away (but not too far away), a real little girl believes there is a unicorn waiting for her, too. This magical story of friendship reminds believers and nonbelievers alike that sometimes wishes really can come true.

4.5 / 7.0

Kind of a fun, silly premise, and a pretty quick little read. I didn’t love it and wouldn’t be super interested in reading it over and over again, but if you have a unicorn lover, this would be a fun one. The art was interesting and fun too!
