Welcome to an enchanted land ruled by unicorn princesses! Cressida Jenkins, a unicorn-obsessed girl who is sure that unicorns are real, is invited to visit, and readers will be thrilled to journey to the Rainbow Realm along with her! In each story, Cressida is called to help a unicorn princess and her sisters in a magical adventure.
In the first story, a blundering wizard-lizard casts a spell that accidentally robs Princess Sunbeam of her magic yellow sapphire. Without it, she loses her powers--the ability to create light and heat. The only way to reverse the spell is for a human girl who believes in unicorns to find the yellow sapphire and reunite Sunbeam with her gemstone. Sunbeam ventures into the human world and enlists Cressida's help, who is thrilled to visit the Rainbow Realm. But finding Sunbeam's sapphire isn't quite as easy as she thought it would be . . .

I have two girls, a 4 year old and a 7 year old. My 4 year old was the one to pick this book out, based on the cover at Barns and Noble. I have never seen it nor had I heard of it before. My guess would be that this is more for a 1st-3rd grade reading level and there are some pictures throughout. While my 7 year old could easily read this out loud on her own I decided to read it to both of them. They both loved the story and couldn't wait to hear more. We have finished the book and now need to get the next book in the series.
