In A Unicorn Named Sparkle, Lucy found out that the unicorn she thought she didn't want was the exact right unicorn for her. In this new story from children's book author and illustrator Amy Young, A New Friend for Sparkle, Lucy makes a new friend and Sparkle is worried that it means she doesn't care about him anymore. What happens when two's company but three's a crowd?
Amy Young was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and though she trained and practiced as a lawyer, she has always wanted to be an artist. She is the author and illustrator of A Unicorn Named Sparkle. She lives in Spring Lake, Michigan, with her husband.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too bad. After absolutely loving A Unicorn Named Sparkle I was pretty excited for my daughter that there was a new Sparkle book. Sadly I felt like it just missed a bit. I didn't feel like it had the same sweetness and spunk of the first book. It almost felt too simplistic. We were disappointed. It would be fine as a borrow from the library but not a must for an at home collection.

Editorial Reviews

"Appealing illustrations, done in pen with pastel washes of color, are warm and inviting... A lively tale about the changing dynamics of friendship." -Kirkus"Sparkle and Lucy's second outing is every bit as sweetly appealing as their first (A Unicorn Named Sparkle)...Tykes who've had their own troubles trying to turn duos into trios will see the full range of their emotions depicted while learning that sharing what we love doesn't necessarily mean giving it away." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
