KIRKUS REVIEW

Uni and the little girl from their first outing (Uni the Unicorn, 2014) finally meet.

Things are not well in the land of unicorns. Endless rain has meant no sun, no rainbows, and no sparkle for the horned, cloven-hooved creatures. They stand pale and forlorn, huddled under umbrellas. But one unicorn still has a twinkle left: Uni, who truly—and magically—believes that little girls are real. That deep spirit of believing gives Uni strength to fight the gloom. Somewhere far away (but of course “not that far away”), the blonde, fair-skinned tot with mismatched socks from the previous work looks at the rain and wonders. She feels that she is needed. On the very same clap of thunder and the very same zap of lightning, the girl and Uni make a wish. Suddenly, they are together! When the other unicorns see a real, true girl, they gain strength from the magic of believing as well. Luckily, during the course of wishing the rain away, a double rainbow appears linking Here to There. Uni can now come home with the girl to meet her family. Alas, that is one sequel the dearly missed Rosenthal will never get to write.

A sweet story for anyone who needs to find a little sunshine and sparkle. (Picture book. 3-6)
