"I wish I had wings." The white unicorn can heal wounds with his horn. He can make rainbows. But what he really wants is to fly. So he sets off on a quest—past birds and butterflies—to find wings of his own.

A charming Step 2 title with a ton of girl appeal.

K-Gr 1
In overly cute illustrations, filled with rainbows, flowers, and butterflies, and simple text, beginning readers meet a unicorn that can fix things with his magical horn. However, he is unhappy because he does not have wings. He asks the birds, butterflies, and swans for wings but, of course, none of these animals can share. He falls asleep on the beach and when he wakes up he sees a winged horse with an injured wing and heals it with his horn. The cured animal leaves, and the unicorn wishes again for wings. He looks in the water and (surprise, surprise) he has them. This title is not going to fly with children. Even the ever-popular unicorn will not save it. It is just too precious and there isn't enough plot to hold their attention.
