    Hands down, Phoebe and Her Unicorn earns the award for literature s most deceptive cover Given its pink, glittery, unicorn adorned front one would expect this title to be the graphic novel equivalent of Daisy Meadow swhy select a pseudonym that so closely resembles that of a stripper WHYkid crack Rainbow Fairies series A nauseating blend of cotton candy and insulting female stereotypes BUT trust, this book this book is NOT that At all Phoebe and Her Unicorn has all the sarcasm a Hands down, Phoebe and Her Unicorn earns the award for literature s most deceptive cover Given its pink, glittery, unicorn adorned front one would expect this title to be the graphic novel equivalent of Daisy Meadow swhy select a pseudonym that so closely resembles that of a stripper WHYkid crack Rainbow Fairies series A nauseating blend of cotton candy and insulting female stereotypes BUT trust, this book this book is NOT that At all Phoebe and Her Unicorn has all the sarcasm and dry wit of Calvin Hobbes. It features Phoebe, a desperately lonely 4th grader who enjoys gaming in her free timefuck that gender norms. Her classmates endlessly bully her, especially archenemy and Head Mean Girl Dakota, who has dubbed Phoebe Princess Stupidbutt Don t be deterred, believe me it gets better Captain Underpants this is not Things take a turn for the better when Phoebe skips a rock across a pond smacking a unicorn right in the noggin This action rescues the unicorn who s been magically held captive See, unicorns are essentially narcissists no, I m not joking and easily distracted by their reflections Relishing in their sheer awesomeness In exchange for her freedom the unicorn, named Marigold Heavenly Nostrilstoldja so not a Rainbow Fairies type book , offers to grant Phoebe one wish Money, fame, limitless gaming, all at her fingertips..Phoebe says NAH What does she choose For Marigold to become her bestie Heartwarming but even Marigold contains enough self awareness to basically replyare you for real, kid.TAKE THE MONEY May the adventures of Phoebe and Marigold commence And they doPhoebe introduces Marigold to such worldly pleasures as slumber parties, family dinners, trick or treating, shield of boringness Phoebe and Her Unicorn is laugh out loud hilarious Marigold plays straight man to Phoebe s age appropriate eccentric There s obvious situational humor combined with quippy one liners, whip smart dialogue and an abundance of snark While it lacks Calvin Hobbesacademic references, the story is similarly entertaining At my library, kids of both genders are equally enad with the story and clamor to get their hands on the latest installment Highly recommend

    I picked this up because I liked the premise and I thought my daughter might like it and wanted to see how she d react Turns out that my daughter already subscribes to the webcomic That s some superior Dadding right there, I tell youAnyway, I had some free time this afternoon and spent it with Phoebe and Marigold and was thoroughly charmed Peter S Beagle mentions this volume in light of Calvin and Hobbes in his introduction and I think he s spot on Read that again Peter S Beagle wrote I picked this up because I liked the premise and I thought my daughter might like it and wanted to see how she d react Turns out that my daughter already subscribes to the webcomic That s some superior Dadding right there, I tell youAnyway, I had some free time this afternoon and spent it with Phoebe and Marigold and was thoroughly charmed Peter S Beagle mentions this volume in light of Calvin and Hobbes in his introduction and I think he s spot on Read that again Peter S Beagle wrote the introduction to this unicorn book That is just so perfect I had a nerdgasm before I d even started the book.Where was I Oh yeah, I think his bringing in Calvin and Hobbes is inspired in that non obvious but completely perfect kind of way you get with really insightful artists, sometimes Phoebe isn t Calvin s brand of activity and mischief so the story isn t really similar But if you replaced Calvin with a self assured, but kind of quiet, nerd girl with a friend unicorn, this is exactly what you d have Simpson gave me lots of goldeny laugh out loud moments, the occasional verklemming, and a deep appreciation for a good story well told I just loved each new development and the deepening relationship between our two main characters.So yeah, I heartily recommend this for anyone willing to roll with a magical unicorn who sometimes gets lost in contemplating her own perfection and a nerd girl who wants a best friend
