I just adore Shannon Hale x LeUyen Pham! I have a few books of them and so I also had to read this one. I was curious what they had made now, plus, I can also not resist cute cats and unicorns.
In this one we meet a tiny kitty with a tiny little horn on her head. She wants to be a unicorn, or more specifically, she thinks she is one! We see her fluff her tail, see her try out neighing instead of meowing, see her prance and more. No matter what two animals say, she keeps on improving, trying to become more unicorn-y. I really loved that she didn’t give up despite what Gecko and Parakeet said. I mean, a lot of us would just have gotten dejected, but she just doesn’t.
I love the addition of the real unicorn and see what that does to our kitty. I just wanted to hug her so badly, that poor ball of fluff! But things really turned and WOW I really loved that, plus it made me smile so much!
While Parakeet and Gecko were at times a bit mean, I mean, just use your imagination guys, the kitty is trying her hardest, I did like to see them on the pages. I especially liked seeing what they were doing. From videogames to wearing helmets and sharing a kick scooter (I like the Dutch word more, step). I was kind of looking forward to seeing our duo appear.
The ending was just perfection, so sweet, so fluffy, so cute! I was just awwwing and smiling the whole time.
And LeUyen Pham has done it again, the illustrations are superb and I adore them!
All in all, if you want a book about acceptation, about unicorns, about kitties, and about perseverance, be sure to check out this book!
