Review new 2021

Back in May I reviewed the first book in The Naughtiest Unicorn series and loved it. If you are not familiar with the series it features a young girl called Mira who has just started at the Unicorn School. A school similar to a normal school, except every student, is paired up with a Unicorn and alongside normal lessons, they have Unicorn lessons too.

Mira was paired up with the laziest, naughtiest Unicorn in the school, Dave, who likes to eat people’s work, sleep, and not do as he is told, but Mira loves him.

In this Christmas book the school is putting on a performance of ‘The Legend of the Snow Unicorn’ and Mira desperately wants her and Dave to have the lead parts. However, Dave is more interested in eating peoples scripts than wanting to perform so it’s no surprise when Mira’s dreams are shattered and they are cast as a pebble and a worm, but she is not going to be defeated, they are going to be the best pebble and worm the school has ever seen.

The Naughtiest Unicorn series is a wonderful, funny series featuring a diverse cast of characters and some amazing unicorns too. In this fifth book, The Naughtiest Unicorn at Christmas, the students are all like one big family. Christmas is fast approaching so their lessons now include a variety of festive activities, including ice skating for PE and Cookie making for Home Ed.

The books are a lot of fun and easy to read. They also include some fabulous and amusing illustrations throughout that will make you giggle. Just like the first book, there are touching moments of friendship and a few life lessons within the pages too.

This series would make a fabulous present for any unicorn loving child that can read unaided. Whilst each book can be read as a standalone, I believe it is best to at least read the first book as that explains the school, setting, the unicorns and how they are paired with their owners and of course an introduction to Mira and Dave.
