A boy and his dog . . . a girl and her . . . unicorn? It all started when Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond and accidentally hit a unicorn in the face. Improbably, this led to Phoebe being granted one wish, and she used it to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. But can a vain mythical beast and a nine-year-old daydreamer really forge a connection? Indeed they can, and that's how Phoebe and Her Unicorn unfolds. This beautifully drawn strip follows the unlikely friendship between a somewhat awkward girl and the unicorn who gradually shows her just how special she really is. Through hilarious adventures where Phoebe gets to bask in Marigold's awesomeness, the friends also come to acknowledge that they had been lonely before they met and truly appreciate the bond they now share.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Starring a plucky young girl and her accidental best friend, the egotistical unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils. You'll laugh out loud at the clever dialogue and pop references in this feisty comic strip. Perfect for Lumberjane readers looking for an incredible mix of humor and interesting chara...

Appears to be a collection of the earliest daily comic strips (Heavenly Nostrils). Sunday issues are separate from the weekday storyline. Good visuals, easy and fun to read. Reminds me a bit of Calvin and Hobbes.

Cute cartoons about a young girl and a unicorn. Funny and sweet with some panels that will make you pause and think this book is really like reading a Calvin and Hobbs collection.
I think I would have enjoyed it more if I was reading one strip at a time in a news paper, than all at once in a book format. But as I am also not the main intended audience that might just be me. I would recommend this for second to 6th grade, and some YA or adult readers.

Unlike Calvin and Hobbs I don't think both boys and girls would have the same enjoyment level. I think the pink cover and fancy unicorn would be a turn off for some boys and their initial reaction would be 'that's too girly/that's for girls'. Something to think about when recommending this title.

Funny and sweet with a bite, this is like Calvin and Hobbes but starring a girl and her non-imaginary unicorn friend. Highly recommend!

I LOVE UNICORNS

Funny series of comics about a young girl and her new unicorn friend (Marigold Heavenly Nostrils). Loved how vain the unicorn is, and also how clueless about human social interactions. Plus Phoebe is a smart, snarky, lovable character.

I am SO glad that my son is fine with all things pink and "girly" because I might have missed this book otherwise. And it's so funny! When Phoebe accidentally hits the unicorn Marigold Heavenly Nostrils in the face with a rock, who knew it would be the beginning of a beautiful friendship? The online cartoon makes the transition to book form beautifully. This was one of my son's favorite books in 2014. He even announced from the back seat of the car one day that he was VERY cross he hadn't managed to read it again lately, which he had been PLANNING to, and all this OTHER stuff had gotten in the way! (He has since made the time to re-read it, multiple times.) Both Phoebe and Marigold are so quirky, and the humor is so well-done, my husband and I were cracking up just as much as kiddo was.
