Staff Reviews

I love that Sparkleton is a boy unicorn, and that he is impatient for his magic to begin! A great story incorporating all those tough issues for boys without being preachy. And unicorns! 

— Jamie


A shaggy purple unicorn does everything he canexcept his homeworkto get wish-granting powers in the first book of this glitterrific, highly illustrated early chapter book series.

Sparkleton begs his big sister to give him wish-granting magic for one whole day so he can prove what a glitteriffic wish-granting unicorn he can be. But all the wishes he grants come out opposite!

Can Sparkleton’s friends Willow and Gabe help him undo the magic before sunset? Or will every day be opposite day?

Praise For…

"Sparkleton’s flaws make him an accessible character and offer a good source of low-stakes tension. A quirky new series that’s strong out of the gate."

"With adorable graphics and encouraging unicorns at the end of the chapters, Sparkleton is about to take elementary libraries by (glittery) storm."
