About this item

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. The magical friendship of Phoebe and her best friend, unicorn Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, is back in this second adventure of a girl and her mythical creature! One year has passed since Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond, accidentally hit a unicorn in the face, and was granted a single wish--which she used to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. In some ways, not much has changed. At school Phoebe still clashes with her rival--and sometimes frenemy--he ever-taunting and imperious Dakota. Outside of school, she still fills her free time with extra-credit homework assignments, dramatic monologues about the injustices associated with school cliques, and imaginative conspiracy theories regarding global forces like the powerful construction paper lobby.



About the Author

Dana Simpson

Dana Claire Simpson grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington, drawing the entire time. She eventually graduated from the Evergreen State College, despite having spent all her time drawing, and not always for credit.

Attempts at doing real work along the way are hardly worth mentioning; the relevant fact is that, from 1998 to 2008, she drew the internet comic strip "Ozy and Millie." After winning the Comic Strip Superstar contest in 2009, she developed the comic strip "Phoebe and Her Unicorn" (originally known online as "Heavenly Nostrils") , currently syndicated in nearly 200 newspapers.

There have been three "Phoebe and Her Unicorn" book collections, to date. The first, Phoebe and Her Unicorn, won a 2015 Washington State Book Award. The second, Unicorn on a Roll, won a 2016 Pacific Northwest Book Award. A third book, Unicorn vs. Goblins, was released in February 2016.

She currently lives in Auburn, Washington, with her tech genius husband and her fairly stupid cat.
