In My Girly Unicorn by J. Pedicini, we are introduced to a little pink and pretty unicorn who spends most of her time alone. The other unicorns were mean to her and called her names, but she continued to dance through her tears. They made fun of her hair and purple horn, calling her a girly unicorn, which made her sad and caused her to isolate herself further. The other unicorns liked riding down a special slide behind a door that led to another magical land. Even then the others made fun of the little girl unicorn because somehow she wasn’t like them. When a severe storm hit the magical land and trapped the unicorns, they became frightened and cried for help, with no one to hear them except that same girly unicorn that they always laughed at. Using her gift of dance she chased the storm clouds away, and the others were grateful that she had saved the day.
I enjoyed reading My Girly Unicorn and think it’s an uplifting read for both boys and girls. We learn that bullying is bad, which is an important subject that should be taught to kids from a very young age. The girly unicorn was teased relentlessly but instead of being bitter and leaving the others to their fate with the evil storm, she danced it away and saved them all. She took the moral high ground which is something that isn’t often portrayed in children's books. It also shows the young audience that it’s okay to be different and to like being girly, no matter if you are a boy or a girl. Finally, I enjoyed the illustrations which are so bright and beautiful and fit perfectly with the storyline. J. Pedicini has done a great job with this book and I can’t wait to read more.
