Review: "Phoebe and Her Unicorn" by Dana Simpson

Phoebe was hanging out by herself skipping rocks one day when one of her rocks skipped and hit Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, a unicorn, in the head.  Phoebe feels absolutely horrible, but Marigold claims Phoebe rescued her. She is so beautiful that she was trapped by her own reflection and could have been there for days without Phoebe’s help. As a result, she will grant Phoebe one wish. Infinity dollars, infinity wishes, and super powers were not possible, so Phoebe wishes for Marigold to become her best friend.

Review: "Raymie Nightingale" by Kate DiCamillo

Raymie Clarke is stunned to learn that her father has run out on her family, but she’s just come up with a sure-fire plan to get him back: winning the 1975 Little Miss Central Florida Tire competition. In her quest to become a Little Miss, Raymie attempts to learn baton-twirling and do good deeds around town, but her efforts result in a series of shenanigans. Luckily, tough-girl Beverly and sweetly eccentric Louisiana--Raymie’s new friends and fellow competitors--are there by her side to help.
