Thelma the Unicorn by Aaron Blabey

Thu 2 May 2019

"Thelma felt a little sad.
In fact, she felt forlorn.
You see, she wished with all her heart
to be a unicorn."

Author-illustrator Aaron Blabey is an expert in conveying big themes in hilarious ways, perfect for small children and Mums and Dads. He deftly critiques the cult of celebrity in this rhyming tale about a pony who longs for stardom.
