Canadian picture-book author and artist Cale Atkinson, creator of such winsome titles as Where Oliver Fits and Sir Simon: Super Scarer, returns to the form in this tongue-in-cheek guide to all things unicorn. Guided by Professors Glitter Pants, Sprinkle Steed, Star Hoof and Sugar Beard, the young "cornie" (AKA: unicorn fan!) will learn about everything from unicorn biology to unicorn history, the use of the horn to unicorn types. At the conclusion of the book, a graduation certificate is included, with room for the young reader/listener's name to be filled in...

Unicorns are a very popular topic right now in the world of picture-books, and Atkinson's Unicorns 101 is an entertaining addition to the growing body of work devoted to the subject. The guide-book format works very well here, and there are plenty of "facts" the keep the reader and listener amused. One of said facts - the idea that unicorns defecate cupcakes - is also contained in Ame Dyckman's humorous You Don't Want a Unicorn, although Atkinson expands on the idea here, depicting a horrified unicorn family turning away from a sidewalk bake sale in which cupcakes are being sold. The artwork here is quite colorful, with a sense of visual humor that is well-matched to the text. Recommended to young unicorn fans with a sense of humor. ( )
