When Sugarlump the rocking horse wishes to see the world, a magical unicorn with a silver horn and sparkling blue eyes turns him into a real horse. But after trotting around the farm, galloping around a racetrack and even dancing at the circus, Sugarlump learns to be careful what he wishes for and realises how much he misses the children he left behind. Luckily the unicorn has one more wish to grant . . . Sugarlump and the Unicorn, the sixth title from this #1 bestselling, chart-busting team is bursting with Julia Donaldson's rhythmic, lyrical verse and Lydia Monks's bright, beautiful illustrations. There's glitter on every page too! Praise for The Singing Mermaid : "[A] tip-top adventurous ballad which will hold its readers captive." - Guardian "[...] a delightful rhyming adventure." - Daily Mail

A little long but my daughter thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the sparkly pages! A lovely story about a rocking horse that makes lots of wishe's to try new things until he finds the perfect place to be. We liked the rhyming story and the repeated phrases as well as the lovely picture's.  My daughter really enjoyes seeing what the horse was going to be next.

My daughter loves this beautiful story, it combines her love of horses, unicorns and all things glittery! 
The book is about a toy rocking horse who is a bit bored of being a toy horse and a magic unicorn that can grant wishes. The story is easy to read and has a nice flow to it and the illustrations are brilliant (as always). 
We love the glittery pages

Even though it is a Julia Donaldson story it was the stunning illustrations on the cover that captivated my little girl.  The illustrations are bright and colourful; with glitter on every page. It is a wonderful story about a rocking horse who doesn’t want to be a rocking horse anymore and a beautiful unicorn that grants it's wishes.  It has a lovely rhythm that my daughter enjoys as she likes to join in. I would definitely recommend this book.

Beautifully illustrated and a lovely story. Quite long though so be warned! Stunningly written with rhyming text, the tale is of a horse who tries lots of different ‘jobs’ before settling for his favourite. The unicorn is the wish granter. Each page is adorned with glitter and keen spotters will notice characters from ‘what the ladybird heard’. Fab!
