Unicorn and Yeti #1 Sparkly New Friends

Sparkly New Friends (Unicorn and Yeti #1) Heather Ayris Burnell. Illustrated by Hazel Quintanilla. 2019. Scholastic. 64 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Unicorn saw something sparkly.

Premise/plot: Scholastic is publishing a new early chapter book series titled UNICORN and YETI. Sparkly New Friends is the first in that series; there are three stories within the book: "Something Sparkly," "An Amazing Friend," and "Snowball Fight." In the first story, Unicorn and Yeti meet each other and become friends. In the second story, the two friends learn more about one another. Yeti, at first, seems a bit jealous of Unicorn's sparkly, magical fanciness. But Yeti is special in different ways. In the third story, the two try to have a snowball fight. It was Yeti's idea; Unicorn isn't so sure about this! IT is not easy to roll a snowball or throw it when you don't have hands.

My thoughts: I liked this one. It will definitely appeal to unicorn lovers in a certain age group. (Though unicorn lovers come in all age groups.) The last page is a bonus that will surely appeal to fans: HOW TO DRAW A UNICORN.
