Kid’s Book Review: Unicorn Moonicorn

Kid’s Book Review: Unicorn Moonicorn

About the Book, Author and Illustrator

This shiny black book with a sparkly foiled unicorn on the front cover just begs to be picked up!

Inside there are bright, bold illustrations and sturdy pages with flaps to lift and simple funny story with word play that is perfect for little ones to mimic when practicing their sounds.

The original idea for Unicorn Moonicorn came from schoolgirl Phoebe Tinkler, a young fan of Nick Sharratt’s, who was inspired by his earlier classic, Elephant Wellyphant.

Book Review

I like the toilet page the best because it is funny

Zaki LOVED this book; the colourful pictures and flaps kept him engaged throughout.

He giggled as he heard the different -nicorn words. The toilet and sketch book flaps were his favourites.

Zaki liked naming the colours of the unicorns on the train picture.

All in all a very fun and interactive book which Zaki has now requested multiple times!!
