Praise For A New Friend for Sparkle: A Story about a Unicorn Named Sparkle

"Appealing illustrations, done in pen with pastel washes of color, are warm and inviting... A lively tale about the changing dynamics of friendship." —Kirkus

"Sparkle and Lucy’s second outing is every bit as sweetly appealing as their first (A Unicorn Named Sparkle)...Tykes who’ve had their own troubles trying to turn duos into trios will see the full range of their emotions depicted while learning that sharing what we love doesn’t necessarily mean giving it away." — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
