Thelma The Unicorn – Aaron Blabey
This is a sweet story, written by the creator of the popular Pig The Pug
picture books. It tells the tale of a little pony named Thelma, who wishes she could be a unicorn. Her friend Otis tells her that she is perfect just the way she is, but she still wishes for something more.
Then Thelma has a wonderful idea, and when she puts it into action, her life completely changes. At first she loves being the centre of attention, but this soon starts to wear thin and she begins to realise that it’s important to love yourself for who you are, even if you don’t have sparkles…

The Magical History Of Unicorns – Russ Thorne
More of a ‘reference’ book than a gift book, this is a guide to all things unicorn. Exploring the unicorn’s vast history, which apparently began before biblical times, and leading up until now, this book looks at the way unicorns have been represented over time and what they mean to different people. It looks at their influences on modern pop culture and their progression from a dangerous and wild beast to a pure and magical horse-like creature. Featuring incredible artworks and quotes alongside very informative text, this is a wonderful guide for people wanting to learn more about the magical and mystical history of this one-horned beast.
