Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—When a girl named Lucy sees an ad in the paper selling unicorns for 25 cents, she sends off for one right away. Lucy has high expectations for her new unicorn, whom she plans to name Sparkle as she rides on his majestic back and impresses all of her friends. However, when Sparkle arrives, he is spotted, short, and mischievous and has fleas. At first Lucy wants to return him to the man she bought him from, but she soon warms up to him when she realizes that, despite his flaws, Sparkle is actually very sweet. Children will laugh at Sparkle's naughty antics but also root for him to win Lucy over, feel heartbroken when she initially chooses to return Sparkle, and cheer when the two are reunited at the end. This is a humorous and charming story about managing unrealistic expectations, choosing a pet, and acting responsibly. Young skillfully draws the endearingly scruffy Sparkle so that even though he more closely resembles an odd-looking "goat" than a unicorn, he is still undeniably adorable. The last page, in which a smiling Lucy declares, "Welcome Home!" and embraces a visibly happy Sparkle, is the perfect endnote. VERDICT This funny, heartfelt story about a girl and her not-so-perfect unicorn will be a hit for storytime or one-on-one sharing.—Laura J. Giunta, Garden City Public Library, NY

Review

"The pencil, pen, and watercolor illustrations, done in a simple, loose style, offer expressive, playful character poses. And Young hits all the visual beats, creating something likable and appealing...A tale about coming to love someone―or something―for who they are and not what one hopes them to be: a pleasant addition to the odd-couple shelf." ―Kirkus

“She had to admit: sometimes he made her smile and sometimes he made her laugh,” writes Young (Don’t Eat the Baby!), whose storytelling and watercolor cartooning are spot-on in their comic timing. Her message to readers is clear: self-awareness and finding a soul mate don’t always come easily." ―Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Cute Book!
By E shoppe on June 14, 2018
I purchased this book for a 5 year old who was able to read most of the book with some guidance. This book is adorable in story concept and illustrations!. Great for imagination, believing and moral. I also purchased the sequel by Amy Young, A New Friend for Sparkle. I loved the glittery lettering but it is only on the paper cover, not the Hard cover which wears easily. Great Book for Unicorn enthusiasts!.
