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." But unlike before, Phoebe now has a best friend to share it with-someone to make her laugh and to listen to all her extravagant ideas. In this second volume of Heavenly Nostrils, titled, Unicorn on a Roll, the reader is invited on a journey into the lives of Phoebe and Marigold as they navigate the difficulties of grade school, celebrate the winter holidays, and explore their super hero/super villain personas together. Join in the fun, as Phoebe competes against Dakota for the leading role of Lisa Ladybug" in their fourth-grade play-or as she struggles to manage" the PR debacle related to her nose-picking-scandal. (I will neither confirm nor deny the events surrounding Boogergate.") Witness a band of unicorns staging an intervention" and learn all the details of Marigold's secret crush on a mysterious creature she has never seen. Perhaps most important, watch as this surprising friendship between a charming, nine-year-old dreamer and a vain, mythical beast forever changes both of them for the better.

This second installment in the Heavenly Nostrils series was even better than the first. Phoebe enjoys the holidays, gives and receives valentines, attends a unicorn birthday party, tries out for the lead in the class play, rollerskates with Marigold and more. Every day is better with a unicorn.

If I had a daughter in elementary school who liked unicorns I would totally get her this book! But I don't, so I got it myself because I love the art style and it's inspiring me to illustrate my own graphic story. It reminded me of Calvin and Hobbes a little too, although the characters have different personalities (so mainly because of the relationship). It teaches good values like friendship, believing in oneself (the main character gets teased for liking school and being a "nerd" but she just rocks it and studies anyway), and believing in magic. I would recommend this book! (Also, I think it's enjoyable at any age and especially if you have a childlike spirit!)

This 2nd book in the Phoebe and Her Unicorn adventure has some cute, sweet, and funny moments. My only gripe is that the comics are more individual and episodic compared to the solid, continuous story introduced in the first book.
Regardless, it's a fun series, and I think Phoebe is adorable! These comics remind me of a young girl-friendly version of Calvin and Hobbes. =)
