Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True is sparkly and magical


Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come TrueUNI THE UNICORN AND THE DREAM COME TRUE, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Brigette Barrager, Random House Books for Young Readers, Aug. 29, 2017, Hardcover, $17.99 (ages 3-7)

Once upon a time, there was a unicorn named Uni who believed with all her heart that girls were real. When the other unicorns laughed at her, she just smiled and kept believing.

Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True, the sequel to Uni the Unicorn, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Brigette Barrager, is the realization of that belief.

It’s been raining nonstop in the land of unicorns. That’s a problem because the unicorns can only get their magic from the golden sun, from magnificent rainbows, and from the sparkle of believing.

Luckily for the unicorns — though they don’t know it yet — Uni the Unicorn believes girls are real. And because of her strong belief, Uni is as magical as ever. Uni’s belief, along with the very strong belief of a little girl far away, bridges the gap and brings the two together.

Uni and the girl bring joy to the land, helping forest creatures in need and lifting spirits. And when the girl meets all the unicorns together, something sparkly and magical is bound to happen.

Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True reads like a story two little girls made up while sitting under a tree and playing pretend. That’s why it works. Without that kind of silly, unbelievable magic, the story would fall flat.

The entire book is a like a snapchat filter on overload. And, again, that’s why it works. There are sparkles and flowers and rainbows to slide down. And there’s a lot of joy. Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True is a happy book. You can’t help but smile as you read the story and get swept up in the charming illustrations. This is a must-have for imaginative girls who want something sparkly without the princesses.
