"Phoebe is a remarkably real little girl, as bright and imaginative as Bill Watterson;s Calvin, as touchingly vulnerable as Charles Schulz;s Charlie Brown...Simpson is that good, and that original."—Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last UnicornA boy and his dog . . . a girl and her . . . unicorn?It all started when a girl named 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 comic strip follows the unlikely friendship between a somewhat awkward girl and the magic 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.
