Ever wanted to win a big, sparkly, Mellow Yellow Unicorn? Chloe Crocodile does, desperately! The only way she can do this is to win Miss Twinkletoes' talent competition. All Chloe has to do is bake a rainbow cake, make a magic castle, design a unicorn fairy costume and give her best performance! Easy right? She just has to beat her biggest competition, Veronica the Elephant. Chloe and Veronica are both very good at lots of things and try their hardest. Every time Chloe does well, Veronica does better. But, it isn't down to them to decide who wins, its Miss Twinkletoes's decision. Although neither of them win, they become friends and agree that friendship is much more important - for now! This tale was sweet and funny and was brilliantly put together by Fabi Santiago who both wrote and illustrated the book. It's a sweet tale of not giving up and trying your hardest, even if you don't succeed, and most importantly a tale of friendship. This would be a lovely book to use in Circle Times or PSHE lessons or even just to recognise and value different friendships and how they can form in the most unlikely of cases!
