{Synopsis} – In this hilarious new fiction series, Louie the unicorn searches for stardom in New York City. Louie’s story is brought to life with a unique visual approach, combining real New York photography with funny character illustrations.

‘Dear Ma and Pa,
The New York School for Performing Arts is the perfect place for a unicorn like me. So far it has been totally AWESOME! Madame Twirler says that ‘pigs will fly’ before I get the lead part in a show. Man, I would LOVE to see that! After all, New York has a unicorn in town, so why not flying pigs?
Love you more than cake,
Louie xx’

{My thoughts} – When I was a child I use to collect unicorns. They were one of those mythical creatures that use to fascinate me. I don’t collect them anymore, but they still are rather fascinating.

Louie is a unicorn that dreams of making it big in New York. He travels there from Story Land in hopes to attend the New York School of Performing Arts. When he gets to New York, he doesn’t quite understand how it is that humans mean to actually communicate with him and mistakes rudeness as acts of interest or liking.

On his way to the school he finds a Cafe where he eats his fill in cake and then ends up in a bit of trouble with the owner because he doesn’t have a way to pay for the cakes he’s ate. They strike a deal and then she sends him with a map to the school. When he gets to the school he makes some more poor judgment calls and ends up making a bunch of humans rather unhappy with him. Eventually it kind of gets sorted out – or the reader gets a better grasp of what’s going on.

If you’d like to know what happens be sure to read this book. It’s filled with Unicorns and Donuts and to me that makes it a pretty nice little book to read. I think any child that wants to have a fast silly read can enjoy this book. I look forward to passing it on to my children as well as to reading the other books in the series.
