Uni the unicorn is laughed at by her friends for thinking that little girls are real. Unbeknownst to her, there is a little girl who is ridiculed for thinking unicorns are real.

In many ways, Uni was a unicorn like any other. She had an (extra!) magnificent mane, golden hooves, sparkling purple eyes, and a swirly horn with the power to heal and mend. She also had the power to make wishes come true. In other ways, however, Uni was a little unique - she believed that little girls were REAL. Although her friends would laugh at her odd idea, and her parents were indulgently amused, Uni knew that there was a little girl out there for her. What she didn't know was that not far away there was a little girl who believed that unicorns were real, despite the amusement of her own friends and family...

A sweet little fairy-tale, one which offers a pean to the power of belief, and the potential for friendship, Uni the Unicorn takes a traditional story-line - a young girl who believes with all her heart (and despite all contrary opinions and ridicule) in unicorns (or fairies, dragons, etc.) - and turns it on its head. Although there is a little girl at the close of the story, the focus here is on Uni, and her belief in purportedly mythical humans. I was reminded of Timothy Knapman and Gwen Millward's charming Guess What I Found in Dragon Wood, in which a dragon discovers a young boy (hitherto believed to be a creature of myth), and brings him home. Brigette Barrager's vividly colorful artwork, with its dark blues, deep oranges, and many shades of purple, captures the feeling of whimsical enchantment in the story. Recommended to young children who believe in mythical creatures (unicorn of otherwise) and dream of encountering them. ( )

Uni the Unicorn is a very cute picture book about a unicorn named Uni that has always dreamed of having friend that is a little girl. No one believes that girls are real, but Uni knows that one day she will meet a little girl and they will be great friends. There is also a little girl that dreams of meeting a unicorn, yet none of her family or friends believe that unicorns are real. ( )

This book is about believing. It introduces a unicorn, which most of us know to not be real, but the book says it's real. The unicorn believes in little girls but his friends and parents don't. The unicorn knows he's right. Then a little girl is introduces who just knows that unicorns are real. Her friends and her parents think they know they are not, but the little girl knows she is right. And the unicorn and little girl know they will mean one day and be each others friend. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385375557, Hardcover)

An original picture book about a unicorn from bestselling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal (Plant a Kiss).
In this clever twist on the age-old belief that there’s no such thing as unicorns, Uni the unicorn is told there’s no such thing as little girls! No matter what the grown-up unicorns say, Uni believes that little girls are real. Somewhere there must be a smart, strong, wonderful, magical little girl waiting to be best friends. In fact, far away (but not too far), a real little girl believes there is a unicorn waiting for her. This refreshing and sweet story of friendship reminds believers and nonbelievers alike that sometimes wishes really can come true.
