Favorite Quotes: “The key to happiness is accepting your unicorniness!” – Cornelius J. Sparklesteed

[from Copyright page] “Feel free to take a look, just don’t steal this book. See, it’s full of unicorn magic, and that sounds cool, I know. But stealing will awaken Cletus, the world’s worst unicorn, to come to your house and fart the stinkiest rainbow toots in your face – forever! Unicorns are cool, thieves are just fools!”


ABOUT: Cornelius J. Sparklesteed is known among all the other horses in Hoofington for his beautiful and creative handmade hats. But Cornelius is hiding a secret under his own tall, pointy hat: He’s really a unicorn.

Hoofington is a friendly place, but its horses pass on lots of mean rumors about unicorns. When Cornelius is chosen to perform for this year’s Hoofapalooza, will he find the courage to show everyone his unicorniness?

It’s Okay To Be A Unicorn is an inspiring story about the rainbow magic of kindness.


My Review:
It’s Okay To Be A Unicorn is fun to read that inspires kids to celebrate their unique differences. I laughed a lot at the wild words the author constructed, such as “Mayor Mare,” “Hoofington,” and “Hoofapalooza.”

The height of the story and proceeding action was kind of disappointing. It missed the mark on the moral point of the story. Overall, it’s a good book kids will love listening to and enjoy the colorful illustrations.
