Aaron Blabley



Thelma dreams of being a glamorous unicorn.  Then in a rare pink and glitter-filled moment of fate, Thelma's wish comes true.  She rises to instant international stardom, but at an unexpected cost.  After a while, Thelma realizes that she was happier as her ordinary, sparkle-free self.  So she ditches her horn, scrubs off her sparkles, and returns home, where her best friend is waiting for her with a hug.  From award-winning author Aaron Blabey comes this joyful book about learning to love who you are. . . even if you don't have sparkles.
