Unicorns are creatures of magic and this is a magical little picture book about them. The book starts out a little slowly by asking the reader if they believe in unicorns. Is the lovely white pony wearing a tall red hat to conceal his horn, or does he have a more logical reason? How about the painted pony in the witches pointy hat? Possibilities exist on every turn of the page until the author reveals the truth—people see what they want to, and magic exists if you believe.

The illustrations and the conundrum of a plot are lovely. The last pages in particular are just such a fun way to illustrate the main message, that you must be able to envision unicorns if you ever want to see them. The final message is if you want to live in a magical world, you will have to see it for yourself. This wonderful story will leave you and your child having a magical day.
