Following a catastrophe at home, the brave young unicorn must travel to an unfamiliar place, meet unfamiliar people and try new things. Over and over the story reinforces the idea that success is usually preceded by lots of failure -- whether the task is juggling or walking a tightrope.
Look past the sometimes ungrammatical words to the beautiful illustrations and story.
As a sidenote: the author's use of pop culture reference within the story is refreshing. Wong uses images and stories we consume everyday to build the world within the Brave Unicorn universe, using current cultural reference juxtaposed with mythical fantasy, parents and their children alike are both in for a treat!
The Brave Unicorn is full of these timely quotes like "If not me, who? If not now, when?" They're packaged up with references to pop culture (admittedly, I didn't get them all, but I'm not a kid, the target audience), so it will stick.
For the times a kid does not have someone to talk to, they can talk to themselves with a little help from Trot. Hopefully this series will become popular enough that kids will be helping each other out from cool references to The Brave Unicorn.
Disclaimer: I do know the Author personally. But if you are a parent, I recommend you check it out. It's a quick read.
The author conveys such through the trials and tribulations of a little unicorn named Trot, and the different characters he meets along the way who encourage him to keep going, even though he wanted to give up. The author also uses colorful and vivid art which work great on an I-pad and would surely keep a child interested in the book.
This is a great digital book and I would not hesitate to share such with my godson and his siblings. While this is not a problem for me, the story does make reference to prayer. However, it is done is a tasteful manner, which balances perseverance and faith.I look forward to seeing future work from this author.
Overall, this is a great book once we overlook the lack of transition in some parts and minor grammatical errors. The illustration is colorful and exciting, and the messages in this book is such an inspiration. It leave a lot of room for kids' imagination to run wild. Looking forward to more fine tuned, and exciting books from the author.
