Stormy Weather!: Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

It had rained and rained and rained in the land of the Unicorns, which meant there hadn't been any sunshine, which meant there hadn't been any rainbows, which meant there hadn't been any magic for what seemed like forever.

And unicorns gotta have magic. Everybody knows that.

All the unicorns have got the blues. Their horns droop. Their sparkle is fading. Something must be done!

But luckily there was one little unicorn who believed that little girls were real.

Uni the Unicorn believes in little girls and knows that somewhere, far, far away, there is that little girl who believes in unicorns. And at that moment that little girl is watching the rain and thunder and she knows, she just knows, that where there is rain and thunder, there may be...


And following that rainbow down, down, down, the little girl and Uni the Unicorn find each other. The sad unicorns, huddled under umbrellas, see them sliding down the double rainbow together.

At last they discovered what Uni had known all along.

Little girls are REAL!

Sunshine returns with the rainbows and so does magic in the Land of the Unicorns, in Amy Krouse Rosenthal's second Uni story, Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True (Random House, 2017) in a clap-your-hands-if-you-believe-in-magic ending that Tinkerbell would have loved. Little girls and unicorns have a special thing going, and here author Rosenthal offers the literary magic, while illustrator Brigitte Barrager provides the sunny palette and fantastic sparkle to return all the unicorns to their proper magical state. "A sweet story for anyone who needs to find a little sunshine and sparkle," says Kirkus Reviews, and a treat for fans of Rosenthal's top-selling first book, Uni the Unicorn.
