Kurt - The Unicorn
Who wants to be a unicorn?
Kurt surely does not. He doesn't fancy it at all. Instead of doing magical things, he would rather graze in the pasture all day. But let`s speak to him a little bit to get to know him better. Chantal will help us understand him:
INTERVIEWER: Kurt, what's your take on the latest unicorn-themed fashion trend? Are you rolling your eyes at it, or secretly donning some glitter and rainbows when no one's looking?
KURT: (rolls his eyes)
Chantal: Kurt, would you mind elaborating a bit?
KURT: (rolls his eyes, walks off to chew on some daisies nearby.)
Chantal (apologetic) : I’m afraid, that’s it.
INTERVIEWER: Kurt, you seem to find everything about unicorns annoying. So, what's your take on unicorn-themed birthday parties? Are they your idea of a nightmare or just another eye-roll-worthy event?
KURT: (rolls his eyes)
Chantal: Okay, let’s change this around a bit. If you were to have a birthday party, what would you suggest …
KURT(interrupts): Daisy themed. Marigold themed. Honey themed. Apple sauce themed. Clover themed. Raspberry themed. Strawberry themed. Blueberry …
Chantal (interrupts): Thanks, Kurt, I think we’re getting the idea.

Kurt is fed up. No surprise there, then. But now that horrid gnome Vladimir has diverted the stream in order to water his garden - all part of his attempt to win the gold medal at the Gnome Garden Show. He doesn’t care that the forest will dry out as a result. And so Kurt is forced to step in once more. But the gnome manages to trick him - and Kurt’s magical powers suddenly vanish! Well … they don’t exactly vanish, but they are reversed. And this is bad news, for if a unicorn’s magic goes wrong, then only the unicorn parents can put it right again. But Kurt is an orphaned unicorn …

There he has to face his worst fears (mice!) - without his magical powers, which have stopped working. Fortunately help comes his way in the form of Princess Flea, Trill, Superhero Toodleoo (the most romantic unicorn ever) - and a whole host of little mice. Can they work together to tame the dragon?

Friendship? Duty? Kurt can take them or leave them. But when Fred, leader of the brave Ninja Goldfish, needs help, the grumpy unicorn gets stuck straight in. Ninja goldfish are vanishing from Fred’s shoal. Kurt quickly turns himself into the world’s first Ninja Unicorn. The two heroes set out on a rollercoaster hunt for the missing fish. Things start to look dicey, and they end up being helped by a violet-scented farting Twonicorn. In short: Kurt is back - grumpier and funnier than ever!

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.” - Buchkinderblog.de
