Now, she says it was "a good book and she enjoyed it". When I tried to draw her on the characters, the plot and description...she said it was "a good book and she enjoyed it - and what did I mean by those other things".
So...i'm going to give this an I-like-it four stars on the basis that a) she read it from cover to cover and b) it kept her quiet for approximately 4 hours. I'm of the opinion that any reading at her age is good and she's going through all of these with gusto.
On the face of it - me telling you it's a good book based on her feedback is just as subjective as me telling you it's a good book based on my feedback....so you're always going to be taking a bit of a risk!
Think of Mallory Towers or Astrosaurs' Academy and you have the measure of the Unicorn School (of course, the Unicorn School is not to be compared as it is a wonderful book for little girls in its own right). It is about a boarding school for Unicorns, with all its little joys and happiness but also little problems of year 1. It is also the story of how important friendship are.
Oriel is the bully of the Year 1 class (yes, even some unicorns can be less than nice!), and he always bullies Storm, a shy unicorn who is the tallest and biggest unicorn in the classroom. Oriel teases him because of this.
One day, Oriel gives a charmed horseshoe to Storm but it is in fact a cursed horseshoe. And it is when big problems and danger starts... a very dangerous adventure.
I bought this for my daughter who is nearly 10 and at the moment, is very much into unicorns. But a younger reader can easily reads it too . It is preferably for girls, but I am sure some younger boys will like it to.
Linda Chapman is a wonderful children books writer.
Check her pages on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Linda-Chapman/e/B001H6WF1I/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1370122265&sr=1-2-ent
My children also read her http://www.amazon.co.uk/Super-Powers-Collection-DOOM--SNARLING/dp/B004HK9CZS/ref=sr_1_9?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1370122810&sr=1-9&keywords=superpowers+++alex+cliff (she also wrote under the name of Alex Cliff for these) and my girl is also currently reading her Stardust: Believe in Magic books.
Otherwise, the book is no better than average with quite a lot of annoying whinnying and suchlike, poor character development and little content.
