Goat is jealous of Unicorn but, as it turns out, Unicorn is envious of Goat. Even though they are different, Goat and Unicorn become friends and are stronger as a team. This is a fun book to read aloud with an important message for children.

Okay, spoiler alert - Unicorn is pretty great, but turns out Goat's not so bad himself. Your kids will get a confidence boost with this super fun book.

I dig unicorns and I think they are pretty great so I read this book. The moral of the story: many times we see the greatness in others but not ourselves. I'm glad unicorn thinks goat is pretty great too and together their greatness complements each-other.

Unicorn is pretty awesome and goat used to be the cool kid on the block. Unicorn can make it rain cupcakes and turn things to gold. Goat has cheese and can climb mountains. Unicorn can only eat glitter and rainbows with his sensitive stomach. When they take the time to find out all the great things about each other they become an unstoppable team.

Good little story about not judging a potential new friend too quickly

Granddaughter picked this book - based totally on title & cover, since she is smitten with unicorns. We absolutely could not and would not read this weird little book to her. Very strange...

Goat used to think he was pretty cool until that Unicorn came along. But how can you compete with a guy who can make it rain cupcakes?

"YOU'VE BEEN UNICORNED!"

Unicorn: “Whoa! What is up with your hooves? Those things are out of control!” Goat: “Oh, these? These bad boys are ‘cloven’.”

Poor Goat. He’s feeling pretty downtrodden at the moment. You would too if you had to compete with someone like a Unicorn for attention. When Goat rides his bike to school no one notices him thanks to flying Unicorn. When he brings marshmallow squares (“that almost came out right”), Unicorn makes it rain cupcakes. When he tries to do a magic trick, unicorn turns stuff into gold. “I can’t follow that!” Goat’s content to mull over the situation alone, until Unicorn comes on by. First Unicorn cannot get enough out of Goat’s goat cheese pizza (unicorns can’t make cheese). Then he gets wowed by Goat’s hooves (they’re cloven). And then he starts wondering what it would be like to do stuff like play soccer without destroying the ball. When all is said and done, it may well be that Goat and Unicorn have a lot in common with one another. Maybe they’ll be friends after all.
