Penguin Random House, 2020. ISBN: 9780241412046. 10pp.
(Age: 1-4) Daddy Pig is helping Peppa look for her magical unicorn. It isn't in her toy cupboard, that's just Horsey Twinkle Toes. "Where else shall we look?" asks Daddy Pig. "A fairy-tale castle!" says Peppa. And so the search continues, across an array of settings including the beach and the bottom of the rainbow. But each time Peppa is disappointed; the tail poking out of a dragon bush is not a unicorn tail after all - it's a kite! And the glow at the end of the rainbow? It's a pot of gold, not Magical Unicorn. A disappointed Peppa heads home, but as soon they are safely inside the doorbell rings; it is Grandpa Pig . . . with Peppa's magical unicorn. She's been hiding out at Grandpa and Grandma Pig's house and Peppa is so glad to see her.
Young ones will love lifting the flaps as they join in Peppa's search for her special friend. The glittery front cover will catch their attention and the familiar and comforting world of Peppa Pig will hold their attention. This sturdily made board book will delight little Peppa fans and allows for self-exploration as well as shared reading. Themes: Board book, Lift-the-flap book, Peppa Pig.
