Even unicorns can have a bad day!

Everyone knows unicorns are PERFECT. They are glamorous, glittery, happy creatures that bring sparkle to the world. But Kevin's day is just not going well . . . he wakes up not only on the wrong side of the bed — but on the floor! Even his Super-Perfect-Hair-Day Spray can't tame his mane. What's a unicorn to do?

Kevin does his best to keep it positive, like a good unicorn should. But after a clam juice incident sparks disaster, Kevin can no longer bottle up his real feelings and (happily) discovers he is not alone. It turns out that unicorns have bad days too — and that's perfectly okay!

This delightful picture book by Jessika von Innerebner simply sparkles with humour, and also serves as a reassuring reminder that everyone has bad days. Even unicorns.
