Kirkus Review

A unicorn learns a friendship lesson in this chapter-book series opener.Unicorn Bo has friends but longs for a "bestie." Luckily, a new unicorn pops into existence (literally: Unicorns appear on especially starry nights) and joins Bo at the Sparklegrove School for Unicorns, where they study things like unicorn magic. Each unicorn has a special power; Bo's is granting wishes. Not knowing what his own might be distresses new unicorn Sunny. When the week's assignment is to earn a patch by using their unicorn powers to help someone, Bo hopes Sunny will wish to know Bo's power (enabling both unicorns to complete the task, and besides, Bo enjoys Sunny's company and wants to help him). But when the words come out wrong, Sunny thinks Bo was feigning friendship to get to grant a wish and earn a patch, setting up a fairly sophisticated conflict. Bo makes things up to Sunny, and thenwith the unicorns friends again and no longer trying to force their powersarising circumstances enable them to earn their patches. The cheerful illustrations feature a sherbet palette, using patterns for texture; on busy pages with background colors similar to the characters' color schemes, this combines with the absence of outlines to make discerning some individual characters a challenge. The format, familiar to readers of Elliott's Owl Diaries series, uses large print and speech bubbles to keep pages to a manageable amount of text. A surprisingly nuanced lesson set in confidence-building, easy-to-decode text. (Fantasy. 5-8) Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
