Reviewed by Courtnee Turner Hoyle for Readers' Favorite

The Tail of Grace & Kristoff by Darby Hobbs is a children's book about friendship. On the island of Agape, named for love, a family of pigs lives in peace. One pig, Kristoff, spends his days playing on an old shipwreck until a unicorn appears. He takes her to meet his family and opens his home to her. They discuss their differences, and Kristoff discovers that the unicorn, Grace, has a beautiful voice and enjoys music. Kristoff takes Grace to a magical tree on the island where she learns her purpose. On the way back, the presence of fog frightens Kristoff, and Grace consoles him. The friends discover many things about one another as they talk under the stars and Grace shares valuable lessons through her stories.

Darby Hobbs wrote a lovely story about her daughter, and readers will almost feel like they know Grace after meeting this unicorn. The beauty of the bond between Grace and Kristoff will resonate with young readers who value books about friendship. They share their talents and fears, encouraging and supporting one another as they reflect true friendship. The Tail of Grace & Kristoff was made for reading aloud and children could act it out as someone narrates. The story flows easily and creates a calming quality for children listening to it. For children who plan to read the book themselves, the format will help readers who are between picture and chapter books see and verbalize the beauty in language. Hobbs promotes positive communication and self-esteem while outlining learning experiences from Grace's stories.
