Sophie loves that's not my books. She absolutely loves this unicorn book. Its bright colourful and her favourite one yet. Brilliant for early learning fun. Lovely sturdy board book, brilliant touch and feel pages. She loves the rainbow unicorn at the end and finding the mouse on each page.

This is the 1st of the 'thats not my' books that I have read to my daughter. We both love this book and would definitely recommend it. The illustrations are lovely. My daughter loved that she could touch and feel different textures throughout the book - especially the sparkly pages! The book itself is very hard wearing which is good, as it has been chewed on and thrown around a lot 

I am looking forward to discovering more of these books with Alice - I have already purchased the xmas series and can't wait to read them already!

This was a great starter book for my daughter when around 1 and a half. She was really interested in touch and feel element of the book. As time as gone on she no longer is interested so I would recommend for younger children.

We're big fans of the 'thats not my...' series in this house. Rosie has just turned one and has been enjoying these books for a few months now. She got the unicorn book for her birthday and has been really enjoying it. She loves to find the texture on each page and get excited when we spot the little mouse! The illustrations are clear and bold, great for a little ones eyes. The script is repepative and simple which makes it just right to hold her attention. I really like the added bonuses on silver egdged pages and a slight sparkle to the pages!

Ooh sparkly pages,rainbows and beautiful unicorns, what’s not to love?! There are all the other usual things associated with this series like tactile pages and the little mouse to spot on each page. This is an everyday read for us at the moment.

I have to say that I was a little jaded by the 'That's not my...' series as we've read so many of them and some of them seem so tenuous (particularly the Christmas ones) so I wasn't expecting too much but as the series goes this is one of the best! My nearly 3-year-old loved it - I think unicorns are so popular with little children for a reason - the beautiful colours and shiny bits. This has re-ignited our interest in the series and caused us to dig out our original 'That's not my dolly' book to compare. It's a bedtime favourite at the moment - so much so that my daughter went to sleep hugging it one night!

5 stars
Me and my boys love the Thats not my range and this book is a lovely addition to the set.
We love the different textures on each page and it’s great for teaching little ones about colours,
Textures, materials and really widens their vocabulary and understanding.
Every young  child should have a selection of these books on their book shelf because they are so tactile.
Great for getting little ones used to hadinlg books as they are sturdy board books and take a lot of bashing.

I love books that I can read to both of my daughter's aged 3 and 6 months. They love the colours, and touchy feely aspect of all the "that's not my" books but particularly this one as my eldest adores unicorns and glitter!  She also likes finding the mouse on each page and my youngest loves the different textures

I am a HUGE fan of 'That's not my' books. Both my neices love these books, they are 11months old and 4 years old. The book is very sturdy for those who like to try and eat their books :) and each page has something to keep the 11month old entertained. She loves feeling the different textures, and my 4 year old neice loves finding the mouse (although she knows off by heart now lol). A brilliant book and well worth buying!! Now to start collecting the others in the series :)

Excellent addition to the 'that's not my...' collection. 

Sparkly cover and holographic edges gave this book a true unicorn feel and my son was rapt with stroking the unicorn's tail. 

Will be added to our favourite bedtime book rota!

Leo has a few That's Not My... books and I think this title is the 50th in the series! Unlike the others he has, this book features a sparkly cover with shiny rainbow edges - making it really eye-catching. He loves unicorns and enjoyed reading through the book working out the correct words to describe the part of the unicorn and how it felt. The textures of the materials used were fairly similar (fluffy, furry, soft, smooth) but he enjoyed it nonetheless! These books are great for babies and toddlers and they can continue being enjoyed as they get older by talking around the pictures.

Both the little ones love the "That's not my..." series, but this one stands head and shoulders above the others. It's clearly something special - the cover is extra sparkly and the edges are gilded with a magical pearlescent sheen.
Each of the pages is extra tactile and feely, including the front cover with a luxurious furry patch.
Ethan loved this book especially - the first reading included give repeat read-throughs. Five stars - it's a keeper!

So pretty! It's a very standard book for the series but with a glittery cover, lots of furry mains and bright colours, Eva really loved this one and had a lot of fun stroking the different textures as well as looking at the rainbow mains.

As with others in the series, it's a great first book for babies as it shows them different textures to feel and play with, nice and easy pages to turn and lots of bright colours to keep their attention. Nice and short so readable over and over again.

This super book caused quite a stir at my house. My daughters were absolutely delighted to read this book. My youngest daughter, 9 month old, found the front cover of the book fascinating. It took a few minutes before we were able to enjoy the book as she was just mesmerised by what she saw and by the soft mane she was able to touch and stroke.
The book follows the familiar pattern of That's not my books, exploring different unicorns which are not quite the one mouse is looking for. Each page has a textured part for little hands to feel and with the thick pages, in this case super shiny pages, are great for little hands to explore and turn easily.
The vocabulary used explores the very on trend unicorn, using words such as "hooves" and "mane." This was great for Baby to hear but also good for my 3 year old daughter.
Both my girls really enjoyed this book and it has been read many times already. I did feel that some of the textured parts were quite similar however, this was not something that my girls seemed to notice.  
A lovely read that is interactive and filled with bright, engaging illustrations.
