Published by Random House Books for Young Readers on August 29th 2017
The Land of Unicorns is in trouble — it has been raining and raining for what seems like forever. This is a big problem because there are only three ways that unicorns can get their magic: from the golden sun, from magnificent rainbows, and from the sparkle of believing.
Luckily, Uni the Unicorn has always always always believed…that little girls are REAL. Join this very special unicorn and the little girl who believes right back as they finally meet and work together to save a magical land and all who live there!
Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Brigette Barrager reunite to revive this world glowing with possibility and hope that is the stuff of childhood fantasies.

This story is based on a positive message that you can turn a bad situation around. It contains easy to read sentences in a perfect step up from rhyming books and getting children ready for chapter books. I read this to a 3-year-old boy and 4-year-old girl and both were immediately captivated. I also shared this book with two neighborhood children, both girls, and ages 6 and 7. They were enthralled and while the older one could rush through the book, the younger one was still able to read it on her own. The images are very colorful and injected with a few almost bare illustrations that really bring the story to life.
This is perfect for anyone who craves the Care Bears and Lisa Frank stickers. Even though this is the second book in a series, you don’t have to read the first one to understand the story line. This will be especially appealing to younger girls.
