Thank you to Random House for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Brigette Barrager reunite to bring us a sparkly, magical sequel to Uni the Unicorn!

The Land of Unicorns is in trouble — it has been raining and raining for what seems like forever. This is a big problem because there are only three ways that unicorns can get their magic: from the golden sun, from magnificent rainbows, and from the sparkle of believing. 

Luckily, Uni the Unicorn has always always always believed…that little girls are REAL. Join this very special unicorn and the little girl who believes right back as they finally meet and work together to save a magical land and all who live there!

Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Brigette Barrager reunite to revive this world glowing with possibility and hope that is the stuff of childhood fantasies. 

Adorable illustrations, and Rosenthal's magical craft of story telling, Uni's newest story is just as good as the first. This story is proof that believing is real, friendship is magic, and unicorns will always be cool no matter how old you are. 

When the magic of Uni's world begins to disappear because of the nonstop rain, and lack of sun, and rainbows (the unicorn's source of magic), Uni has to do something. Even though Uni is the only ONE unicorn who believes that little girls exist, that believing turns into something real, when the girl and Uni finally meet. What transpires is magic, friendship, and proof that you never stop dreaming or believing, even if you're the only one. 

Amy and Brigette once again join forces to bring to life the magic, wonder, and fun of childhood in a beautifully told and illustrated story. This is another picture book I would have worn out as a kid. It's wonderful to have a story that can both be a fun, enchanting story as well as share a wonderful message to it's audience. 

If you love unicorns, rainbows, magic, believing, dreaming and friendship (it doesn't need to be in that order), than this book is for you. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
