Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1
In overly cute illustrations, filled with rainbows, flowers, and butterflies, and simple text, beginning readers meet a unicorn that can fix things with his magical horn. However, he is unhappy because he does not have wings. He asks the birds, butterflies, and swans for wings but, of course, none of these animals can share. He falls asleep on the beach and when he wakes up he sees a winged horse with an injured wing and heals it with his horn. The cured animal leaves, and the unicorn wishes again for wings. He looks in the water and (surprise, surprise) he has them. This title is not going to fly with children. Even the ever-popular unicorn will not save it. It is just too precious and there isn't enough plot to hold their attention.

Kirkus Reviews
The can't-miss subject of this Step into Reading series entry-a unicorn with a magic horn who also longs for wings-trumps its text, which is dry even by easy-reader standards. A boy unicorn, whose horn has healing powers, reveals his wish to a butterfly in a castle garden, a bluebird in the forest and a snowy white swan in a pond. Falling asleep at the edge of the sea, the unicorn is visited by a winged white mare. He heals her broken wing and she flies away. After sadly invoking his wish once more, he sees his reflection: "He had big white wings!" He flies off after the mare, because he "wanted to say, 'Thank you.' " Perfectly suiting this confection, Silin-Palmer's pictures teem with the mass market-fueled iconography of what little girls are (ostensibly) made of: rainbows, flowers, twinkly stars and, of course, manes down to there. (Easy reader. 4-7)
