“Embrace your inner unicorn.” – Dana Simpson
“Phoebe and Her Unicorn” is book one in a series of 12.
As a little girl I loved unicorns. They were my favourite mythical creature. That coupled with the pink cover and sparkling silver lettering I was drawn right into book. I have to confess that I didn’t pay any attention to the words “best comic strip.” So, when I opened the book at home, I was a bit surprised. I typically don’t read comic strips. However, I am happy to report that it turned out to be a pleasant surprise because I really enjoyed the read and I would recommend reading it.
“Phoebe and Her Unicorn” is a fun read. The comic strip images are whimsical and add to the storyline. The story is humour and sauciness. Phoebe and Marigold Heavenly Nostrils are a great team and their banter is hilarious. If you are in the mood to read something light, fun and witty this is the book.
The intended age range for “Phoebe and Her Unicorn” is 7 to 12 years old but I enjoyed it as an adult reader. Phoebe is a realistic little girl that young readers can relate to. She is clever and imaginative with a splash of mischief mixed in. The story explores friendship in a way that young readers can enjoy, relate to, and learn from. That aside, who wouldn’t want a unicorn for a best friend?
