The Story:
The unicorns are going all out to celebrate unicorn day in style. There are just three rules: Show off your horn (be proud to be a unicorn); fluff up your hair; and have fun (that’s the most important one)! But the celebrations come to a sudden halt when an impostor is found. What will the unicorns do about horse and his pretend horn?

Favourite Spread:
Every spread in this book is jam-packed with colour and fun, fun, fun. The glitter fight was brilliant. I also loved when the unicorns slid down the rainbow slide. My favourite spread (**spoiler alert**) was when the unicorns accept Horse and as the celebrations continue, they hold up a sign saying: “PROUD to be a unique-orn!” What a fabulous message to give children within such a fun picture book.

The Verdict:
I could tell from the title page (which features a unicorn pushing a trolley of items including Unique Horn Shine and a sparkle barrel) that I was going to enjoy this book. About two thirds of the way through I thought it was going to be a fun story but that was it, fun. Then a spread transformed the book into a story about inclusion and acceptance which completely elevated the story for me. This is a book that will get you all in the party mood!
