Beautifully illustrated story for young readers
Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2016
I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my young daughter. She loves unicorns and reading and it looked like a great book for us to read together.
Its a nice, short book. Don't get me wrong, I love reading to my daughter, but some of these really long books just make me want to hide them! Its a Step 2 book, so perfect for beginning readers who are just starting to learn to read. This book is beautifully illustrated with colorful butterflies and swans and rainbows. The main story is about a unicorn who wishes that he had wings, and he visits different animals and wishes he had wings like they did.
Spoilers! At the end, he meets an injured Pegasus, and uses his magical unicorn powers to heal his hurt wing. If you are expecting him to appreciate who he really is, you'd be wrong. He's STILL moping about the lack of wings. Then suddenly he magically has wings! I assume the Pegasus granted him wings and off he goes to say thank you. I liked to talk to my daughter about how we should be happy with the gifts that we have, that the Unicorn was already special just the way he was. She says why would you NOT want wings, because wings are AWESOME. I really had not thought about the story in that light, instead of being happy with what we have, maybe we should strive to be more? All in all, its a cute story with eye catching pictures that really holds her attention and we got to engage her in some thoughtful conversation about Magical Unicorns.
