Booklist - 10/01/2018 This charmer of a picture book makes a strong case for the existence of unicorns by juxtaposing a skeptical narrator with the action of the story itself. The pictures, done in pen and ink and watercolor, suggest the horse country of the Southwest, with the soft shades and outlines shifting easily into a magical landscape. It’s here that the reader meets a horse wearing a red top hat. The narrator dismisses the idea that this might be a unicorn wearing the hat as a disguise, arguing that the horse may be having a bad hair day, or shielding its eyes from the sun. Meanwhile, the horse travels over the countryside—trailing sparkles, flowers, and butterflies—before being joined by two equine companions: one wearing a conical chapeau, the other sporting a cowboy hat. Their journey ends in a purplish landscape with castle-like turrets. At last, the hats come off, but the creatures appear in dusky silhouette, leaving it up to the reader to decide what's creating the shadowy points on their foreheads. A fun take on belief and magic. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
