Emmi and Unipig 1: Unicorns Are Far Too Common!
A pig with a horn and a heart in the right place!
In Pixietown, every child gets a magical creature for their tenth birthday. Emmi will turn ten next week, and she is absolutely sure that her creature will be a graceful, lovely unicorn. But when the day arrives, what does she see rolling towards her through the magical mist? A smiling pig — with a unicorn’s golden horn! Emmi cannot imagine a magical creature less special than the cheerful pink unipig who will be her magical creature for the rest of her life. As luck would have it, she has already told half the school that she will be getting a unicorn, so a unipig is the last thing she needs right now. But Emmi has no idea how unique her unipig will turn out to be!
A heartwarming story of friendship and identity.
Emmi and Unipig are simply adorable. Author Anna Böhm’s little heroes convey the wise message ’Be true to yourself!’ with great humour and charm.
“A turbulent, beautiful, true-to-life story, bursting with curious, clever, creative ideas, and the most wonderful illustrations – just the way a children’s book should be.”
