Phoebe and Her Unicorn
by Dana Simpson  (graphic novel series)

One day Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond (four skips!!!) and hit a unicorn in the face. Instead of wishing for piles of gold or world peace, Phoebe's magical wish is that the unicorn Marigold Heavenly Nostrils will be her best friend.

If Calvin were a girl and Hobbes were a unicorn, they would be Phoebe and Marigold.

But Calvin isn't, and neither is Hobbes, so we're stuck with something even better: a series of fun (and funny, and snarky) adventures of two friends with great imaginations and a willingness to be silly in the name of friendship PLUS a special guest appearance from Todd, the candy dragon.

Phoebe and Marigold are my new cure for winter, and they make me smile.

*magic, wishes, imagination, no cussing, no kissing, some flirting with the class spelling champ, some animosity with a girl whose hair gets "accidentally" magicked off.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern
