Review Quotes

Praise for The Magical Unicorn Society Official Handbook:

Every page is beautifully designed, in full, vibrant color, with lovely illustrations that accompany the text. It is as inventive as it is thorough, categorizing unicorns into different families and presenting the wealth of information in various formats, including time lines and family trees. This book is sure to delight any curious child who adamantly wants to believe in unicorns and always has plenty of stories to share about them. --Booklist
