Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great, Bob Shea

Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great


Bob Shea

Category: Children’s Picture Book

Synopsis: Goat thinks Unicorn has it made until he finds out even Unicorn has his limitations.

Rating: ** (3-star scale)

Not a new premise at all, but one that even adults are continually learning. Don’t compare yourself to others; others have shortcomings too. We all complement each other. Even if you’re a goat. Even if you know a unicorn who eats glitter and makes it rain cupcakes. We’ve all been the goat, and we all forget we’re part unicorn.

A nice book, that although not original in plot, has some pretty fantastical artwork (and glitter).

Would you recommend this to a friend?
