Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great (2013)
When Unicorn moves to town, Goat finds himself feeling less and less awesome by comparison. After all, it’s hard to compete with someone who has an amazing horn, knows how to fly and can turn things into gold. Frustrated, Goat turns a plunger into a pretend horn and prances around scoffing, “Look at me! I’m Unicorn! I think I’m so-o-o cool!” Flopping down to enjoy a slice of goat cheese pizza, Goat is shocked when, drawn by the amazing smell, Unicorn dances over. Suddenly, the tables are turned as Goat realizes Unicorn is just as frustrated. How can Unicorn compete with creamy delicious goat cheese pizza, fantastic cloven hooves and two curvy horns? Before long an understanding is reached and an unstoppable duo is born.
A delightful look at friendship from both sides of the fence and a gentle reminder that everyone has something to celebrate, this hilarious picture book is both great fun and could also serve as an introduction to discussions on friendship and differences.
