The Baby Unicorn, by Jean and Claudio Marzollo

Star is a baby unicorn and was just born her parent's named her star because of the mark on her forehead looked like a star in the sky.Star's father has to go check on the other seven unicorns because the dragons are near and they don't want the dragons to hurt them so Star's mom has to use the house spell on star.What bothers Star most of all is that her horn hasn't grown all the way yet,but she needs her horn to use the Eight-Horn Friendship Spell to make the dragons not evil or else there won't be any unicorns any more!Will star grow her horn in time??

What I like about the book is it has a moral it is bravery is always good and prevents evil. And that moral is a strong one.

I always loved the illustrations. They really stuck with me. I remembered them really vividly long after the book was lost. Your post made me track down a copy online and I was surprised when I got it in the mail to find that the pictures were almost exactly as I remembered them. I also really remembered the scene where they tickle the trees. I always laugh at that part and I think it is a very clever, interesting story element. It illustrates well the point that being brave includes keeping your head and thinking through situations, rather than just kicking your way through them.

Oh oh, I love this book too! I just reordered it off of Amazon because my mom sold mine many many years ago. It has always stuck with me as a favorite childhood book. Now as an adult, I want to read it again! I am glad others love it too! <3
