Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 A sunny, if formulaic, tale of the merits of standing apart from the crowd. As new foals are born in the meadow, one little orphan colt stands out: white coat, golden mane, and a whinny so loud and so clear that everyone took to calling him Trumpet. All the other horses love Trumpet until he starts to grow a horn. Then he is ostracized. Readers will hardly be surprised when a disastrous situation arises and the unicorn is invaluable fire sweeps through the barn, and he uses his horn to unlatch the bolt and save his friends. If the story is nothing new, Kressley's telling is charming enough, though the occasional overuse of cutesy slang is jarring. The real treat of the book is the liveliness of Lee's whimsical black-line illustrations on cream-colored stock, with bits of white to highlight Trumpet on every spread.

Format: Hardcover
Carson's book is outstanding, especially for any child growing up feeling differently whether from asthma, diabetes, birthmarks, wheelchair bound, maybe a lisp or even that super smart kid or shy kid who is often viewed as strange or weird. Trumpet is a true ambassador for the young person who feels they just don't fit, or think, or feel, the way the other kids appear. Trumpet proves that different can be mighty super! Yay for the vision of Carson Kressley in addressing this valid and important matter.

My daughter and I went and saw Carson read this book at a local bookstore. He was so charming and the book was so cute with such a great message - I bought several copies for gifts. I highly recommend it.

We got this as a present for our son's 3rd birthday and he absolutely loves it. He asks us to read it MANY times a day, which we thoroughly enjoy doing. The size/format is great for little ones, the story is cleverly written, and the illustrations are really enjoyable. We love it because of it's positive message. Thanks Carson!

My daughter is only 7 months old so I haven't had the chance to read too many different books to her yet but this book is by far the best childrens book I have ever read. I actually enjoyed the message of the book so much that I've been suggesting it to other parents. THIS BOOK IS DIFFERENT, AND THAT'S WHY IT'S SUPER!!!

I never thought that a childrens book could have that much of an impact on my life as an adult.

2006, I was an 18 year old boy with learning difficulties and was ashamed of it to the point of trying to hide it and denying that I had them.

Then my mum gave 'You're different and that's super' for Christmas. At the time I had no idea why she gave her grown son a childrens book, so I read it and by the time I finished it I was flooding with tears..........because it really hit home with my everyday life and since then I grew to be not ashamed of my condition, here I am now writing about it for the world to see.

In the years since then I have been starting to become a bit of a writer myself and I now actually see my condition as a gift as it has positively influenced my writing.

Anyway, the point is that this book was a major milestone for me and I HIGHLY recommend to any person, or anybody who knows a person who feels isolated from the world they live in because of who and what they are, be it their disability, sexuality, ethnicity or religion. Because I hope it could have the same positive effect it had on me.

I was reading this book to my 3 grandchildren, ages 6, 13 and 15. The older child is autistic. I wanted something that would make him feel special even tho he is different. I also wanted the other children to realize how special and different from each other they are. I started asking questions afterwards and they gave me great answers. They got it. They heard what I was saying. I thought the book was a great read. I also happen to really like Carson Kressley.
