Summary: Meet Rainbow Tinseltail (better known as Bo) of Sparklegrove Forest, a unicorn who sports a rainbow mane and sneezes glitter. Bo’s a wishing unicorn, which means they (Bo’s gender is never revealed) can grant one wish a week. When new unicorn Sunny pops into existence (that’s how it is with unicorns), Bo’s hoping he’ll become a new best friend (Sunny seems to be a boy). The unicorns get a challenge to use their special magical powers, but Sunny doesn’t know what his is. Bo wants Sunny to make a wish to learn his power, so that Bo can grant the wish and win Sunny’s friendship. But that’s against the rules, and before long Bo and Sunny have gotten into a fight. Fear not, there’s a happy ending for all, and a second book coming out in early March. 80 pages; grades 2-3.
Pros: A new diary series about unicorns written and illustrated by the author of Owl Diaries? Better stock up on extra copies…this is sure to be a hit with the early-reading crowd.
Cons: Keep a dose of insulin handy for this super-sweet dose of unicorn magic.
