Twelve Unicorns of Christmas

When a Christmas picture book is all about unicorns you know you are on to a winner. If your child loves unicorns this is the perfect Christmas picture book, with lots to laugh about as the little girl counts down to Christmas with her unicorn friend. A fun and delightful blend of the traditional Twelve Days of Christmas song and crazy unicorn’s antics. The fabulous colourful illustrations play a large part in creating a zany image of an action packed, chaotic build up to Christmas day.

Things do get a bit crazy and there’s so much to do, but her wonderful unicorn is a little mischievous… he munches all the mince pies, scribbles on the Christmas cards, makes a lot of mess and when the carol singers arrive, cover your ears, because unicorns definitely can’t sing. I think children will identify with this as the run up to Christmas can really get busy and hectic.

A wonderful interactive book that you can enjoy with your child as you join in the song and count each gift on the page as you go along, ending with a grand festive finale full of unicorn celebrations. This fantastic book is full of humour, warmth and family fun.
