I had read this book as well as book 1 (Baby Unicorn) 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.
