Booklist - 07/01/2017 This is the sequel to the best-selling Uni the Unicorn (2014), which offered a clever fantasy twist with its premise of a unicorn that believed in little girls. Here Uni and the little girl work together to try and help the unicorn world, which has been plagued by rain. In fact, so much rain has been falling for so long that there hasn’t been any sunshine or rainbows, and without these, the unicorns lose their strength and magic. At the book’s beginning, Barrager’s illustrations show elongated unicorns standing among tear-shaped, lavender trees and blue-gray drops of rain, looking very much like the stylized, two-dimensional unicorns in medieval tapestries like the famous The Lady and the Unicorn. Once Uni and the little girl are introduced, however, the illustrations become My Little Pony–like with eye-popping colors, stars, and flowing manes. As the pair frolics through the land of unicorns, the creatures’ spirits lift with magical results. The over-the-top cutesy factor is high, and the story is cotton-candy light, but unicorn fans will be enchanted. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The combination of Rosenthal and unicorns has already proven to be a best-selling one. Demand may be even higher for this posthumous offering, as fans seek out Rosenthal’s final works. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
