Be careful what you wish for . . .

Thelma is an ordinary pony who dreams of being a unicorn. And through a little bit of chance, and a strange dash of pink glitter-coloured fate, her dream comes true! Suddenly Thelma is transformed into a unicorn and becomes an international sensation.

But fame comes with its price. Fans are screaming and crying, and sometimes they chase her home! Is it possible that fame is not all it’s cracked up to be?

In this adorable picture book from Aaron Blabey (creator of Pig the Pug), kids will laugh at Thelma’s transformation from ordinary pony to glitzy unicorn and back to pony, while parents will appreciate the underlying lesson of staying true to oneself.
