The Baby Unicorn by Jean Marzollo

Baby Unicorn

Meet Star, a baby unicorn.  Star is one of the last unicorns in the forest.  Their numbers have been diminishing ever since the dragons stole a unicorn’s horn and became mean with the power.  It is said the casting of a special spell will break the evil that has ensnared the dragons.  There’s just a couple of problems:  the spell requires the full-grown horns of all of the unicorns (who have been captured by the dragons), and Star’s horn hasn’t grown yet.  Star learns that her horn will grow anytime she is brave.  Join Star on her adventure and find out if she can be brave enough for her horn to grow in time to cast the special spell and save the captured unicorns.

I had read this book as well as book 2 (Baby Unicorn and Baby Dragon) when I was a child. In fact, my love of dragons, unicorns, and mythical beings may very well stem from these books. When the book arrived, I didn’t know if my memory was going to be better than reality. I can say without a doubt that, these days, they just don’t make children’s books like they used to.  By that I mean that there is a whole paragraph of words on the pages rather than a simple 10 word (or less) sentence. This book is beautiful both in the moral of the story and in the illustrations.

Overall rating:  5 out of 5 stars

Appropriate for all ages.  I recommend these books to anyone with children.
