A boy and his dog . . . a girl and her . . . unicorn? It all started when Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond and accidentally hit a unicorn in the face. Improbably, this led to Phoebe being granted one wish, and she used it to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. But can a vain mythical beast and a nine-year-old daydreamer really forge a connection? Indeed they can, and that's how Phoebe and Her Unicorn unfolds. This beautifully drawn strip follows the unlikely friendship between a somewhat awkward girl and the unicorn who gradually shows her just how special she really is. Through hilarious adventures where Phoebe gets to bask in Marigold's "awesomeness," the friends also come to acknowledge that they had been lonely before they met and truly appreciate the bond they now share.

One of those rare perfect hits: Smart, funny, and cleverly engaging.
It's often compared to Calvin and Hobbes and is a must-read for anyone missing that comic. Or, you know, just anyone.

This was so much fun! I love Phoebe and her unicorn and look forward to seeing them in more adventures. Makes me less sad that there is no new Calvin & Hobbes in the world.

Appears to be a collection of the earliest daily comic strips (Heavenly Nostrils). Sunday issues are separate from the weekday storyline. Good visuals, easy and fun to read. Reminds me a bit of Calvin and Hobbes.

Cute cartoons about a young girl and a unicorn. Funny and sweet with some panels that will make you pause and think this book is really like reading a Calvin and Hobbs collection.
I think I would have enjoyed it more if I was reading one strip at a time in a news paper, than all at once in a book format. But as I am also not the main intended audience that might just be me. I would recommend this for second to 6th grade, and some YA or adult readers.

Unlike Calvin and Hobbs I don't think both boys and girls would have the same enjoyment level. I think the pink cover and fancy unicorn would be a turn off for some boys and their initial reaction would be 'that's too girly/that's for girls'. Something to think about when recommending this title.

Funny and sweet with a bite, this is like Calvin and Hobbes but starring a girl and her non-imaginary unicorn friend. Highly recommend!
