Description

Tilly Teasel loves working at the Unicorn Rescue Center but what she really wants, more than anything else, is a unicorn of her very own.

When Splodge shows up at the center, looking a bit scruffy and a little sad, Tilly decides he’s perfect! When she brings him home, however, Mr. and Mrs. Teasel aren’t so convinced, especially when he eats Mr. Teasel’s slippers, whines all night, and gets sparkly hoof prints all over the couch! Will Tilly convince her parents that all Splodge needs is a little training?

A touching story about patience, perseverance, and the responsibility of owning a pet.   

Beautifully illustrated, QEB’s Storytime series introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories. Featuring charming animal and human characters, the books explore important social and emotional themes like friendship, gratitude, perseverance, and overcoming fears. A Next Steps page at the back provides guidance for parents and teachers.

Mike Byrne grew up on the Wirral near Liverpool, England, before moving to Wales to study Illustration at Glyndwr University. He began his career as a designer for a greetings card company and then became a studio manager for a licensed stationery designer before leaving to fulfill his dream of illustrating children's books. Mike now lives in the countryside with his wife, cat, and his two baby sons where he spends his days doodling and illustrating children's books fueled only by tea and biscuits.
