Goodnight Unicorn

May 10, 2017

Karla Oceanak and I recently read our books at Old Firehouse Books's storytime and I want to tell you, the kids loved Karla's story! I wanted to share the book with you in case you haven't heard of it. It's a parody of Goodnight Moon and is super clever. It's Goodnight Unicorn. If you or your child is a unicorn lover, this is perfect! You'll love how the art looks like Goodnight Moon.

Here's the story description:

As night falls in the enchanted forest, the unicorns and their friends gather to get ready for bed. Say goodnight to all the types of unicorns — the pearly-whites, the foals, the oldens, the fluffies, the jet-blacks, the cuties, and more — as well as the wonderful beings who attend them, from rainbows and fairies to baby dragons and, of course, the full moon.

Readers who've always wondered about unicorn habits, what a group of unicorns is called, and other mysteries will also be captivated by the fun unicorn facts that follow the story.

It's a magical, fantasy bedtime story for unicorn lovers young and young-at-heart! Grown-up fans of My Little Pony, The Last Unicorn
, and Lisa Frank will treasure this book just as much as the new generation of unicornophiles! (I didn't know there was such a thing!)

"For all those little lords and ladies who adore unicorns, this book is the bedtime story for them! The illustrations are top-notch and beautifully colored. The prose is perfect. Highly recommended." — The Children's Book Review

It'd be fun to get both books and read them together for comparison.
