"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
And now for something completely different... Unicorn on a Roll - Another Phoebe and her Unicorn Adventure by Dana Simpson is due out May 26, 2015. Phoebe and her friend Marigold Heavenly Nostrils have been compared to Calvin and Hobbes. There is the same sort of snarky humor involved. And even though it says that it is aimed at grades 4 and up, there is definitely humor for the and up.
Book one of the Heavenly Nostrils Chronicles, Phoebe and her Unicorn has quite a few pages available to preview on Amazon.com
so you can get an idea of what kind of humor is involved. In book one, Phoebe skips a rock across some water and hits the unicorn in the head. The unicorn had been transfixed by its reflection in the water and grants Phoebe a wish. After several failed attempts at wishes, she finally succeeds with having the unicorn become her best friend.
Book two picks up a year later. Synopsis from Goodreads.com
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 superhero/supervillain 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.
