    Well it's a new week and surprise surprise my daughter has a new favorite book some of you may have noticed that this changes uite freuently This time it's actually one I find uite charming and it a short enough read that I don't get tired of the again agains uite as fastIt also helps that the idea of this book is extremely amusingUni is a unicorn Not just any unicorn mind you but one with the most beautiful and sparkly one in existence but sadly all is not well for Uni She's often mocked for her ridiculous belief that little girls are real It is upon this revelation that my daughter bursts into fits of laughter until near tears every single read The idea is cute and comforting to a child who may believe in mythical creatures as it presents that those creatures believe in you as well Despite the other unicorns poking fun at her for this belief and her parents giving knowing looks Uni stays steadfast drawing pictures of girls reading stories about them and constantly daydreaming of the fun she'll have if ever she meets one Even if unicorns aren't their thing what kid can't in some way relate to this feeling? The artwork is also uite nice here and the pictures capture both a sense of humor on the situation and also give off a charming design Well worth a look 45 stars

    I FOUND ANOTHER CUTE PICTURE BOOK Uni the Unicorn is a story of a young dazzling unicorn who dreams of a far off land where little girls exist It can be overly cute at times but I think this is a perfect book for all of you who have a little girl in your lives I love the cute story and the artworkillustrations are what make the book even better

    Man I started this book and was all ready to rate it five stars And then I came to the end What a letdownThis reads like half a book We're introduced to a unicorn silly enough to believe in little girls and a little girl silly enough to believe in unicorns and thenthat's it They don't meet They don't do anything Fuckall actually happens in this book it's thirty two pages of exposition And while the subtitle a story about believing makes that mildly interesting I guess Waiting for Godot this ain't It's pretty much a disappointmentIf that isn't bad enough the unicorn appears to dream only of the existence of little white girls The unicorn's ideal little girl is blonde and blue eyed and all the illustrations of theoretical little girls were pretty darned white I found this especially galling in light of the fact that the illustrations were so reminiscent to me of the work of Gyo Fujikawa a Japanese American illustrator who represented children of all colors in his workNever mind that there are little boys out there who love unicorns too I know better than to expect them to be represented in a book like this unfortunatelyI wanted to like this book but I don't I absolutely do not recommend it The only reason it gets two stars instead of one is because the illustrations are pretty even if they're exclusionary

    Story was cute but LOVED the illustrations Like if Lisa Frank grew up to be a hipster who drew colorful magical things with a vaguely vintage aesthetic

    Cute cute cute and cuteThe artwork is cute the story is cute I just wish it was a little longer

    I am a fan of Rosenthal's other picture books but sadly this was a let down for me Lovely vintage y illustrations but a story that seems rather weak and ends very abruptly It really feels as though we are missing another third of the story ie do the girl and Uni ever meet? What's the uptake of the story?

    Well this was unexpected I mean this in the best possible way For once it’s the unicorn believing in a supposedly mythological creature and not the other way around but also the other way around at some point Let me make this clearer Uni is a unicorn that loves being a unicornBut there’s something missing She believes there is someone out there—a human girl—waiting for her to become best friends That is her wish Perhaps her life will be complete once she meets the little girlLittle did she know there is indeed a little girl who believes in unicorns just waiting to meet her first unicorn friendUni reminded me of Marigold from the graphic novel series PHOEBE AND HER UNICORN aka HEAVENLY NOSTRILS If you enjoyed that series you will love this picture book It is wonderfully illustrated and pretty charmingThe message is the following it’s important to believe even if you don’t have proof that what you believe in exists You never know when your dreams will become reality but one thing is certain if you don’t keep on believing they just might neverBlog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’

    i saw this beautifully illustrated and colorful book on a display at barnes and noble and i couldn't resist reading it and it was adorableuni is a unicorn that is different from all the other unicorns not because of anything physical that sets her apart but because of a belief that she has i didn't know anything about this book going in and it was such an awesome little surprise of what that belief was and it just melted my heart 💕👧🏻i think this will definitely be a huge hit among little girls that's for sure ☺️

Such thing as little girls No matter what the grown up unicorns say Uni believes that little girls are real Somewhere there must be a smart strong wonderful magical little girl waiting to be best friends In fact f Cute cute cute and cuteThe artwork is cute the story is cute I just wish it was a little longer

Ar away but not too far a real little girl believes there is a unicorn waiting for her This refreshing and sweet story of friendship reminds believers and nonbelievers alike that sometimes wishes really can come tr I am a fan of Rosenthal's other picture books but sadly this was a let down for me Lovely vintage y illustrations but a story that seems rather weak and ends very abruptly It really feels as though we are missing another third of the story ie do the girl and Uni ever meet? What's the uptake of the story?
