When I think of unicorns and rainbows, I think of Amy Krouse Rosenthal. Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True is the highly anticipated sequel to Uni the Unicorn, a story about believing.
Uni is a unicorn with a magnificent mane, golden hooves and sparkling purple eyes, who believes that the little girls from stories read are in fact real. Uni dreams of making friends with a REAL girl, so they can run fast through the meadow, spin and twirl in the sunlight, and of course of course of course slide down rainbows. Although the other unicorns don’t believe little girls are real, Uni does, and not so far away, a real little girl believes in Uni. Their friendship is meant to be—but will they ever meet?
Yes, of course of course of course dreams do come true.
There are three ways unicorns get their magic—from the golden sun, magnificent rainbows, and the sparkle of believing. Sadly, it’s raining in the land of unicorns, which means no golden sun, no magnificent rainbows, and no sparkle. Uni and the little girl determine that the only way to bring sun, rainbows and sparkle back to the land of unicorns is if they believe in each other. We already know that they do. Their belief is so strong that they’re magically brought together. Of course of course of course this story has a happy ending.
Friendship works its magic in both of these treasured reads. The meeting of Uni and the little girl is filled with more sparkle and shimmer than I could have imagined. Two very sweet tales for lovers of unicorns, rainbows and vibrant colours, daydreamer and believers in magic.
