Celebrate all things sparkly, including unicorn poop, with this rainbow-filled, humorous story!

Did you know that when a unicorn poops, rainbows arch across the sky? And when they toot, shiny bubbles float all around! What happens when a unicorn sneezes or spits or cries? More magical whimsy occurs when unicorns do all these things, of course.

Just don't step in their poop-eww!

Complete with stunning, bright, and magical full-color illustrations, When Unicorns Poop is sure to delight kids as well as be the perfect gift for any unicorn-crazed adult.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

Err... okay.

This isn't even a story. It's just a collection of admittedly humorous illustrations detailing various bodily excretions of unicorns. When unicorns sneeze, they get glitter everywhere. They fart shiny bubbles. Their tears are milkshakes. You get the idea. The book ends by telling the reader not to step in their poop. But... weren't we just told that unicorn poop is simply a rainbow-emitter?

I guess if you're really into unicorns, you might like this. But a lot of the jokes are more cleverly done in Dana Simpson's Phoebe and Her Unicorn comics; I'd recommend those instead.
