Thelma The Unicorn by Aaron Blabey

- Humor, Friendship, Adventure With a Unicorn -

Otis, Thelma's best friend, is aware that Thelma isn’t happy being an ordinary pony.  Thelma desperately wants to be a special unicorn. Otis tells her that she’s perfect as she is, but it doesn't change her desire to be a unicorn. When she finds a carrot she decides to tie it to her head and make her dream come true. 

When a trucker comes by he swerves when he sees Thelma, who looks a bit like a unicorn. Pink paint and glitter splash off the truck and cover Thelma. 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?

My Thoughts

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.
