Welcome to an enchanted land ruled by unicorn princesses! Cressida Jenkins, a unicorn-obsessed girl who is sure that unicorns are real, is invited to visit, and readers will be thrilled to journey to the Rainbow Realm along with her! In each story, Cressida is called to help a unicorn princess and her sisters in a magical adventure.
In the first story, a blundering wizard-lizard casts a spell that accidentally robs Princess Sunbeam of her magic yellow sapphire. Without it, she loses her powers–the ability to create light and heat. The only way to reverse the spell is for a human girl who believes in unicorns to find the yellow sapphire and reunite Sunbeam with her gemstone. Sunbeam ventures into the human world and enlists Cressida’s help, who is thrilled to visit the Rainbow Realm. But finding Sunbeam’s sapphire isn’t quite as easy as she thought it would be . . .
Kids are going to love this story and parents are going to love that they provide an enchanting and safe reading experience!
You have magic, unicorns, belief in the unbelievable, beautiful illustrations, royalty and of course friendship.
The way Bliss describes her scenery, such as the palace and canyon, is so imaginative and beautiful you feel like you are walking alongside her seeing this as well.
Bliss has not only written a story that will fulfill many young children’s imagination with joy and color but she’s made some fun characters as well. There’s the wizard lizard who doesn’t seem to understand the word “No” and whose spells constantly backfire. As well as fun unicorn princesses all with different powers. Dragons who can cook, flame-bites which are like foxes made of flames and put off blinding light and heat that will make you sweat, sand dunes and cacti which can talk.
Reading about their fresh fruit made me so hungry!
As a parent of children who seem like they could fight all day I appreciated the implied lessons about making amends, working together, and apologizing when you did something wrong.
What child wouldn’t be excited to go on a journey to a magical land governed by unicorns?
