Unicorns 101

Unicorns 101

cover image Unicorns 101 by Cale Atkinson is a fabulous faux textbook that offers a hilarious crash course in the most magical of creatures. You’ll have a hoot discovering juicy facts about unicorns - and witty wordplay abounds (“Scientific name: Betterthan horsicus”). On the syllabus is Diet & Digestion (unicorns have a refined palette, preferring “Peanut butter and pixie dust sandwiches”); and Social Behaviors (check out the “ancient ritual of the dance-off!”).  Atkinson’s penchant for creating dynamic, exuberant, fall-off-your-chair funny picture books is on colourful display here. Perfect for unicorn fans both in and out of the classroom - there's a cornucopia of classroom tie-in possibilities.
