Well, what a delicious treat this is! Look at those colours! The fabulous rhyming text! The joy! Needless to say, I loved This is Not a Unicorn and can see our unicorn-mad children loving this - and any child who loves rhyming text and a fun story.

When a young girl meets a 'not-a-unicorn', she discovers that there is more to her new friend than meets the eye; it's not-a-unicorn, it's a 'Singing-in-the-rain-icorn, a look-inside-your-brain-icorn, a make-your-garden-bloom-icorn' - and so much more, as we discover in one delightful spread after another.

Imaginative and lovely to read aloud, the images are also full of fun surprises for young children and are bound to spark their own imaginings of what else a not-a-unicorn could be! Do share this, either with a class or with your own children at home - they will love it.
