Goat used to think he was pretty cool until that Unicorn came along. But how can you compete with a guy who can make it rain cupcakes?

It's goat vs. unicorn, which isn't exactly the fairest competition of all time. Goat's capable of making Rice Krispie treats that almost turn out all right. Unicorn makes it rain friggin' cupcakes. But when you get to unicorn complaining about everything he has to deal with in life, the tables... Read More »

Best danged thing I’ve encountered in a long time. You know what this book really is? It’s a unicorn book that boys will actually want to read. And personally I think that’s exciting news that should be celebrated far and wide. So if you’re looking for a funny picture book that would make a killer readaloud to kids in anywhere from Kindergarten to the 3rd Grade, pluck this puppy up and keep it by your side.

Unicorn: “Whoa! What is up with your hooves? Those things are out of control!” Goat: “Oh, these? These bad boys are ‘cloven’.”

Poor Goat. He’s feeling pretty downtrodden at the moment. You would too if you had to compete with someone like a Unicorn for attention. When Goat rides his bike to school no one notices him thanks to flying Unicorn. When he brings marshmallow squares (“that almost came out right”), Unicorn makes it rain cupcakes. When he tries to do a magic trick, unicorn turns stuff into gold. “I can’t follow that!” Goat’s content to mull over the situation alone, until Unicorn comes on by. First Unicorn cannot get enough out of Goat’s goat cheese pizza (unicorns can’t make cheese). Then he gets wowed by Goat’s hooves (they’re cloven). And then he starts wondering what it would be like to do stuff like play soccer without destroying the ball. When all is said and done, it may well be that Goat and Unicorn have a lot in common with one another. Maybe they’ll be friends after all.
