Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great Details
One of the things I love most about books is that they reflect back to us emotions that we all feel which helps us to become more aware of what we are feeling. In this story, the main character, a goat, is a school-age child who thinks he has a lot of confidence until a unicorn comes to town. The goat is envious of all of the unicorn’s magical abilities. However, later on, the unicorn smells the goat’s amazing goat cheese pizza and we find out the unicorn has some insecurities as well.
This book would be adorable and sweet if it were just a book about realizing that everyone has their own unique strengths. However, this book has the added advantage that it is hilarious. I was not familiar with the author Bob Shea before this book, but now I think we are going to have to check out more of his books. Any book that includes lines like “Taste my cloven justice!” and “I can only eat glitter and rainbows. Darn my sensitive stomach!” is a winner in my book. Just as a warning, this book does include the phrase, “Stupid regular hooves!” Be prepped to change that word or warn your kids that this book has some language not to be repeated if you choose!
