K-Gr 2–A joyful tale of friendship, support, and hidden talents. In the enchanted land of Gnome Woods live elf best friends Mossy and Tweed. A single-horned goat called Wise Old Unicorn is a beloved member of the forest. One day, a baby bird falls in the lake and before anyone can react, a real unicorn arrives and saves the chick, leaving poor Wise Old Unicorn feeling very dejected and useless. Nothing Tweed and Mossy say seem to help him feel any better. One day, the real unicorn decides to eat the berries off a brambly bush and they soon find themselves trapped in the brambles. Mossy and Tweed see an opportunity to help both of their friends and call on the goat to use his super unique abilities to free the unicorn and save the day. Spread-length illustrations, humorous details, and easily followed action make this a selection for young fantasy readers.
VERDICT A good choice where fantasy elements are popular. Pair this with Sarah’s Unicorn by Bruce Coville.
