Unicorn Day

Diana Murray, illus. by Luke Flowers. Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, $17.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-4926-6722-3
It’s Unicorn Day, a celebration of unicorn pride, style, and having “fun, fun, fun!” Illustrating in ebullient digital art, Flowers renders bipedal unicorns with wide eyes and fabulously styled manes and tails. In a woodland landscape, the unicorns slide down rainbows, dance with butterflies, and catch cupcakes raining from the sky, and a full spread depicts an epic “Glitter Fight!” Tension arrives with the discovery of a horse wearing a pretend horn. The unicorns initially exclude, but the imposter’s tearful response leads them to “give the horse a hug instead.” A joyous, inclusive procession—joining the unicorns and horse are an octopus, human children, an elephant, and a yeti—further emphasize that Unicorn Day is for “unique-orn”s and “younicorns,” too. A song celebrating “cupcakes, sprinkles, cherry tarts, starlight twinkles, glowing hearts” closes out the story. Readers are sure to wish for their own Unicorn Day (and they’ll want to mark their calendars for April 9). Ages 4–8. (June)
