Unicorn of Many Hats
The latest addition to the Phoebe and her Unicorn Adventure series is Unicorn of Many Hats. This volume is a collection of short vignettes that cover a year in the life of Phoebe and her unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils. They explore their unlikely friendship by posting on online discussion forums, watching their favorite television shows, and contemplating what it means to be a cool kid.
The illustrations in this book are fantastic as always. The vignettes are heartwarming, witty, and relatable to today’s kids. A nice bonus is a glossary in the back that explains vocabulary used in the book, such as pandering, unionize, and hypothetically. Although billed as being for 7-12 year olds, some of these jokes may go over the heads of the younger end of the spectrum, but it won’t be detrimental to the overall enjoyment of the book.
These are fun, quirky friendship tales that boys and girls both can enjoy, whether they’re already fans of unicorns or not.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
