My School Unicorn

Illustrated by Tom Knight

Starting school is an adventure—especially when you have a magical unicorn friend by your side!

It’s almost time for Evie to go to school, but thinking about it makes her feel nervous. Preschool was lots of fun, but big school sounds a little bit scary. When Evie gets ready for school, though, she makes a magical discovery. Hidden inside the pocket of her dress is Bobby—a tiny school unicorn! Bobby has a very important job—helping children feel brave when they go to school. With her new magical friend by her side, Evie soon learns that starting school is LOTS of fun! This magical tale of friendship will soothe your little one’s starting-school worries, and includes instructions on how to make your very own school unicorn!

Willow Evans is the author of My School Unicorn. She lives in London and enjoys exploring the capital and writing stories about the people she encounters along the way. A lover of all things magical, Willow greatly enjoyed creating Bobby (and wishes she had a tiny school unicorn, too!).

Tom Knight is an illustrator from the east coast of England. After ten years working as a graphic designer, he began illustrating books for children. He works from a poorly temperature-controlled studio in the garden, where he is constantly distracted by the greedy birds that hang out by the feeder outside his window.
