About the Book and Author

Bestselling author Mark Sperring has created a brilliant bedtime story that is just right for unicorn fans who are learning their numbers. With beautiful illustrations from top-selling illustrator Tim Budgen, children will love spotting the unicorns on every page.

A pink and sparkly silver cover makes this book a great choice for children who will enjoy learning to count to twenty with a little encouragement from their one-horned friends!


20 Unicorns at Bedtime
Mark Sperring author

Mark Sperring worked for many years selling books before turning his hand to writing them. He is the author of several best-selling series, and with over 40 picture books in print, his titles have been translated into more than 14 languages and shortlisted for a range of prizes. In an exciting new move, his delightfully naughty picture book, The Naughty Naughty Baddies (Bloomsbury), has been optioned by Dreamworks as the basis for a new animated series.

Tim Budgen is a freelance illustrator. For much of his life he has been scribbling down ideas and can usually be found with a pencil in one hand and a sketchbook in the other! Tim has a real passion for character design and storytelling. His illustration work has been described as ‘story telling with whimsical charm, warmth and humour’ and he’d like to think that is pretty true!


Book Review

My favourite part was when Mindy flies away on the unicorn to the castle and goes to sleep

This book was amazing! I loved all the unicorns!

My favourite part was when Mindy flies away on the unicorn to the castle and goes to sleep.

From Mum: Unaysa was mesmerised by all the cute little unicorns and requested me to read this book over and over again to her. The illustrations really bring it to life and as a bonus she’s enjoying counting along too!
