Vol. 1 - Wer möchte schon ein Einhorn sein?

Kurt – Who Wants to Be a Unicorn?!

The unicorn craze? Totally pathetic! says Kurt.

A pesky bird, a princess who beats up the prince and Kurt, an unwilling unicorn who thinks, sparkly pink stars and rose-scented farts are totally pathetic – it’s enough to make you weep. But what’s the good of complaining? With a little help from Trill the bird and the ninja goldfish, unicorn Kurt will rescue kidnapped Prince Flea in the end, pink fur or none.

“Kurt is one thing above all else: amazingly funny! At last, here we have a different kind of story about unicorns and princesses. That Kurt is anything but your typical unicorn and that he finds everything a unicorn normally represents incredibly annoying, is the theme that runs right through the book and keeps the laughs coming right to the end.” -
