The NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING series Phoebe and Her Unicorn is back with all-new sparkling tales of best friendship. Whether they’re visiting Camp Shimmerhorn or fitting unicorn hooves for bowling shoes, Phoebe and Marigold find magic in every moment.
A unicorn in bowling shoes is quite a STRIKE-ing sight. But for nine-year-old Phoebe Howell, it’s just another fun outing with her best friend, the illustrious unicorn Marigold Heavenly Nostrils. This unique and magical friendship is at the heart of the ninth Phoebe and Her Unicorn collection, which includes adventures such as writing original songs, publishing rival news websites, and making a summer visit to the exclusive Camp Shimmerhorn. Life with a unicorn BFF is not without its challenges, however, and whether it’s homework, friction with classmates, or talent show jitters, Unicorn Bowling is full of amusing, heartwarming reminders that when the going gets tough, the tough get sparkling.
Phoebe is a nine year old with a unicorn for a best friend, Marigold. The two have lots of adventures together in this fun young graphic novel full of clever humor and adorable illustrations. I haven’t read any of the others in the series but decided to give this one a try. I would absolutely recommend this for younger readers who love unicorns! There are several pages with more advanced wording or phrases but the definitions are included in the back. I found it a great way to introduce some new concepts to younger readers.
If I was a young reader I would have wanted to read all of these! Heck, I still might! I have a chest full of stuffed unicorns my preschoolers love to play with. These books would make a fun addition to my library.
Thank you to Andrews McMeel and NetGalley for this advanced copy!
