Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–After listening to her father read a story with a fairy-tale ending, Claire drifts off to sleep, wondering what would make someone happy forever. In her dreams, her stuffed unicorn comes to life and the two of them travel through the world of make-believe to find the answer to her question. The first creature she talks to is the Library Fairy, who requires only a good book and some peace and quiet to be happy. They also encounter a princess, a frog prince, a fairy godmother, and a wishing well. Each of the fanciful beings answers the little girls polite inquiries in a different way, and she realizes, Maybe its one of those questions that doesnt really have just one answer. When Claire wakes up the next morning, she tells her father about her philosophical findings. He praises her sensible conclusions and makes his little princess happy with a big pancake breakfast. This imaginative tale is illustrated with lush, richly hued watercolors. Each picture is filled with romantic details that mirror the whimsical flavor of the story. This pleasant, if somewhat long-winded, journey to the land of imagination will delight fairy-tale fans, who will identify with its inquisitive heroine.–Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA

I bought it as a gift for my 5 year old cousin, not knowing much about it and was immediately impressed with the beautiful illustrations. It may be a little too old for her but I know she'll grow into it. It has a sweet message, too: a little girl asks her dad what makes people happy, then she goes to sleep and dreams that she and her unicorn fly around and ask all sorts of fairy tale creatures the same question. She comes to the realization that different things make different people happy, which is a good message to send to kids at a young age. I'm very happy I bought this book and I know my cousin will like it. I also bought her the matching unicorn doll by Yottoy which is a very high quality doll that will make the story come to life even more for her. The two together make a great gift!

My three year old daughter has to have similar items to her big sister, who is obsessed with unicorns. I had purchased The Midnight Unicorn for my eldest daughter last Christmas, and picked Claire and the Unicorn for my youngest.

The illustrations are whimsical, with lots of fun little subjects your young child will enjoy finding on the pages.

The story is a sweet tale of a little girl who goes on a magical adventure with her stuffed unicorn, and my daughter really enjoys it.

Purchased for her fourth birthday. She decided that the birthday theme was to be rainbows and unicorns so this book was perfect and the illustrations were beautiful. Great story for an active imagination.

This book was purchased as a baby shower gift. My son and daughter in law knew they were having a baby girl and named her Claire. I loved the story and that the dad was reading the book to the little girl. It was a perfect gift for my son and I look forward to reading it to our little Claire!

My daughter is 3.5 and obsessed with all things princess, which we have very mixed feelings about. This book delivers such a nice message which I hope will stick with my daughter after reading it over and over and over. (message is basically we each define our own happiness) And I love how its her dad reading her stories, discussing fairy tale endings, etc. instead of the mom.

Although the storyline in this book was very predictable, that was perfectly fine with me and my granddaughter. She wants and needs happy endings, and this book combines that with lovely, whispy, magical illustrations

My five-year-old daughter, a unicorn fan, got this for Christmas and absolutely loves it. The story is about Claire and her unicorn, Capricorn, and their quest to find out what makes one "happy ever after." It has a really nice message about diversity - different things make different people happy - that we have enjoyed time and time again.
