She names him Sparkle and imagines how he’ll be and what she’ll do with him. But Sparkle does not live up to her expectations. In fact, she’s going to send him back. But . . .
I won’t spoil the end for you. Suffice it to say, it’s a cute story with a feel-good ending. The illustrations are fun, too.
And now there’s a series of stories about Sparkle. The newest one is A Unicorn Named Sparkle’s First Christmas.amy-young-art-sparkles-first-christmas-cvr-500x621
