Bloomsbury Children's books, 2017. ISBN 9781681193267
(Age: 5-10) Recommended. Cressida Jenkins' favourite thing is unicorns. Cressida's dreams come true when she finds a real live unicorn. Can she do as the unicorn princesses ask?
The characters in the story are the unicorn princesses, Cressida and wizard-lizard. The characters in this book are interesting and some of them are funny.
I think the plot makes sense and it is very interesting. The big idea of this book is finding a human girl who believes in unicorns to find the missing gem.
The settings of this book are in the woods behind Cressida house and rainbow realm. The settings are creative and are described well in the story as well as the pictures.
The style of the story in imaginary, the text is big and easy to read. I like the style of this book.
I recommend this book for 5 to 10 year olds. If you like the series of Rainbow magic by Daisy Meadows you will enjoy these books.
Grace, Year 6
