Thelma the Unicorn

Title: Thelma the Unicorn
Author: Aaron Blabey
Illustrator: Aaron Blabey
Publisher: Scholastic Australia (2015)
ISBN: 9781743625804
Thelma the pony desperately wants to be a unicorn. Her dream comes true with help from a carrot and an incident with a truckload of glitter and pink paint. But becoming famous and pretending to be someone else is not as much fun as she thought. 

“You see her fans were mad for her. They’d scream and cry and laugh. They’d chase her everywhere she went to get her autograph.” So she ditches the glitter and the carrot horn. Thelma returns home to her delighted friends and is happy to be who she is.
