How to Grow a Unicorn

Publisher: Puffin

Sarah is looking for the perfect birthday gift for gardening-loving Grandma. She heads to Mr Pottifer’s Parlour of Plants, which is stocked with magical plants that fly, dance and even growl. But Sarah isn’t interested in any of those – she’s spotted the most wonderful packet of grow-your-own-unicorn seeds.

The night before Grandma’s birthday, Sarah plants the unicorn seeds, but she doesn’t follow the instructions and things don't quite go according to plan. In fact, things grow wildly out of hand!

How to Grow a Unicorn is a fun and magical picture book. The story flows in wonderful rhyme from page to page and is filled with childish humour that will have young readers giggling from start to finish.

Steven Lenton’s beautiful artwork really brings this funny story to life; the magical creatures leap from the pages and Sarah is adorable with her yellow raincoat and polka dot welly boots.

This enchanting book ends with handy instructions from Sarah on how to help children "grow" their reading skills, including using the front cover to dig for clues and feed the story with lots of imagination.
