From the duo behind the best-selling If I Had a Dinosaur comes this humorous and imaginative celebration of unicorns.

Have you ever given any thought to what the perfect magical pet would be? Giants are far too big, and dragons are way too hot, but what about a unicorn? It might eat all your ice cream for breakfast, but if you get upset about that, it will feed you cotton candy! It can sprinkle star dust on grumpy siblings, carry you to soccer practice on a rainbow, and make sure you dream nothing but sweet and fluffy unicorn dreams.

In this playful tale, a little girl finds out firsthand what it’s like to have a magical creature as a pet.
