Book Review

I would highly recommend this book to people who love mysteries and unicorns

As soon as I saw this book my eyes were glued to the front cover because it is so colourful and bright. I really liked the illustrations and how much hard work Lucy Fleming put into making the cover really nice.

When I read the title, I wasn’t so sure if I would like this as I am not really into unicorns but I actually really enjoyed reading this book.

I really liked the mystery and cliff hangers like when Elodie, Caleb and Marnie-Mae found sandy footprints and they were having strange dreams. I think the bit about them being unicorn detectives will be great for younger children, maybe 5-6 year olds.

My favourite part was when Elodie’s mum was attracted to the house of handbags because I found it really funny; it reminded me of when me and my mum go shopping and look at bags. I like the bit when Elodie, Caleb and Marnie-Mae went on a boat along the river in Venice, it made me think of a time I went on a boat on holiday.

I also like the pictures in the book, they help me to make pictures of the story in my head. I was always really intrigued to find out what happens next in the book.
I thought that the book was easy to read. I would highly recommend this book to people who love mysteries and unicorns.
