Be careful what pet you wish for in the newest picture book from fan-favorite author Ame Dyckman and rising-star illustrator Liz Climo.

Unbeknownst to him, unicorns make the absolutely worst pets: they shed, they poke holes in your ceiling, and they make a big mess. With a knowing wink from Ame Dyckman, creator of Wolfie the Bunny and cheerful illustrations from Rory the Dinosaur creator and Tumblr star Liz Climo, this rollicking story shares all of the ways a pet unicorn can ruin your life, and is sure to have readers in stitches.

The cover of this book is SPARKLY. And it's also very cute inside.

The illustrations and subject really appealed to my inner six year old. A quick and funny book with pretty unicorn illustrations.

This story reminded me of the "If you give a pig a pancake" series by Laura Numeroff. It was a cute story, but I felt like it was trying to convince me that I should NOT like unicorns and I DO want to like them!!!

But I do want a unicorn, even more after reading this book!

I am a huge fan of Dragons Love Tacos and this book reminded me of that title so much! It is goofy, weird, and overall delightful. Kids will love this. And even if you are not a kid, you will love this too. It is fun and fluffy.
