I Really Want That Unicorn

Publisher: Orchard Books

Chloe REALLY wants the Mellow Yellow unicorn in the toyshop window. To get it, she has to win Miss Twinkletoes’ competition, which involves baking a rainbow cake, making a magic castle, designing a unicorn fairy costume and giving the kind of amazing performance that will leave everyone else – even her ever-so-slightly show-offy friends Veronica and Fabrizio – flabbergasted.

Sure enough, Veronica and Fabrizio outdo Chloe at every turn, with sparklier unicorn cakes and unbelievably massive fairy castles. Yet, in the end, maybe it’s better to be friends than adversaries.

This colourful, delightful story about competitive kids and the power of friendship is full of expressive detail, fabulous cakes and towering castles – tons of fun and a great message for little ones who might need to learn that being first isn’t always the most important outcome.
