And so this ordinary pony becomes a beautiful pink and glittery unicorn. Exactly what Thelma dreamed of. With her special new look, she immediately becomes a star. Across the world, her fans cheer her name. Her special dreams have come true, or have they?
What Concerned Me: Nothing
What I Liked Most: While this may not be a truly original story, the idea of a pink, glittery unicorn in this story will definitely appeal to kids. The illustrations are detailed and add tremendously to an already cute story. Thelma The Unicorn is humorous but also teaches a lesson to be happy with who you are.
