Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;The spring that Trumpet was born, there were so many new foals in the pasture that almost no one notices there was a sassy little colt who didn't belong to any of the mares....andlt;/Iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Fab Five phenom Carson Kressley brings us the story of a one-of-a-kind pony who learns that it's our differences that make us super. Whimsical black-and-white illustrations from renowned equine artist Jared Lee corral both humor and charm in this warm tale of a unicorn struggling to find his identity and place in the world.

Review:

"Kressley, best known as the fashion stylist on TV's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, encourages readers to embrace their individuality in this chipper riff on The Ugly Duckling, set on a horse farm. When an orphaned colt with a snow-white coat and super-loud whinny (earning him the name Trumpet) arrives on the scene one spring, the other foals treat him like a brother. But as time passes and Trumpet begins to grow a horn on his forehead, the ponies ostracize him, whispering nasty comments like 'Icky' and 'Weird!' The ensuing painful loneliness leads Trumpet to believe that 'Different is awful.' A fire in the barn, however, proves an opportunity for Trumpet to save the day and demonstrate just how super it is being a 'different' pony — nay, unicorn. Kressley's message-driven text gallops along nicely, accented by perky vocabulary and universal emotions (those familiar with the author can almost hear him say of the ponies, 'In the fall they discovered scrum-diddly-umptious apples together'). Lee's (the Black Lagoon series) wiry black-and-white ink drawings ring both poignant and humorous notes. The small trim size makes this an attractive choice for sharing or gift giving. Ages 3-8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

"Fab Five" phenom Kressley shares the adventure of Trumpet the unicorn, who is sad because he feels different. However, being different can be super, as Trumpet finds out. Illustrations.
