Here’s the hilarious story of Donut, a scruffy unicorn who can’t fly—but who keeps on trying! From the author of One Big Pair of Underwear and the illustrator of Sweety.
When Donut, a fluffy, scruffy unicorn with a colorful horn spots a bird in the air, she thinks, why can’t I be up there, too? And so she jumps! off of a log and and even a trampoline. But thump! she falls down to the ground. After many attempts at flight (including wings fashioned out of sticks), Donut schemes with the other animals in the field, and finally comes up with an ingenious and imaginative solution. Finally, her perseverance pays off—and Donut flies!
With a simple text and expressive art, here is a character-driven story from a popular author-illustrator duo that’s laugh-out-loud funny, ingenious, and sure to appeal to all those unicorn fans out there—especially those who like their unicorns a little on the imperfect side.
