Inspirational and thought provoking, this book follows the adventures of a boy and his new friends. And it's funny - my grandkids loved the mole! And the artwork is unique and stunning. This would make an excellent gift for animal lovers, children and graduates.

The Unicorn's Baby Brother by Sarah Brown

The Unicorn's Baby Brother by Sarah Brown is a delightful story for toddler siblings. 

I read it to my granddaughter Etta and her little brother Wesley while on vacation. It was a big hit with them and I had to read it several times! Etta can relate to Sky being pesky to Jewel! Lovely artwork.
