Suzanne Barton and Shannon Horsfall – My Unicorn farts Glitter

Hachette, Australia and NZ, 2020

This rather charming little picture book is just what we need right now. Whilst it may seem at first to be just another jump onto the unicorn bandwagon, this book actually comes with an endearing and important message about the importance of sibling love.

There is just enough icky in it to satisfy young readers/listeners. The artwork is simple and colourful – good for reading to a group and in these days of social distancing probably will come up quite well via Zoom or Skype or other such group online meeting places.

After all, we all need someone in our lives who will share the last bite of his or her icecream cone – post-COVID-19 of course.
