A sweet and charming picture book about fear, anxiety, and unicorns.
The unicorn smells nice, but she is very rude. She never waits for an invitation to come over―she walks right in and tracks heart-shaped hoof-prints across the carpet. She sits in Elizabeth’s chair and makes a complete mess of the house. She even sleeps in Elizabeth’s bed.
But the unicorn is no ordinary unicorn . . .
In The Unicorn Came to Dinner, author Lauren DeStefano and illustrator Gaia Cornwall invite parents and their kids to talk about feelings―especially worries and anxiety―and ultimately about how to be yourself.
Lauren DeStefano is a full-time author and professional collector of cats. She has written several young adult and middle grade novels. The Unicorn Came To Dinner is her first picture book.
Gaia Cornwall loves to write and illustrate for children. Her debut picture book, Jabari Jumps (Candlewick Press) was named a Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book, among other accolades. Gaia lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with her two little kiddos, one programmer husband, and one kitty kiddo to rule them all.
