You'll find cultural and ability diversity in the illustrations. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so the goal is to show—through illustration—that colors, toys, games, activities, behavior, and interests have no gender. 

 

 Keep your eyes open for gender pride flags within the illustrations as well. The character main themself sports a nonbinary pride flag sock. 

 

A Few ★★★★★ Reviews from Amazon

"My kiddos loved this book. We are huge on self love, inclusion, and accepting people. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous! A very much needed addition to our unicorn collection."

~ Joy Haines

Such a beautifully perfect gift for my young non-binary child... ( Finally a book representing gender diverse kiddos that’s NOT ABOUT gender. Couldn’t love it more.

~ Lyndsey

Beautiful story and remarkable illustrations. My 10 year old loved it. It’s a perfect night time story to end the day in a charming way. Uplifting and warm. Who doesn’t want to be a unicorn?!

~ T. Kelly

When's the Next Book Coming?

The process has started with the next book, I Wish I Were a Dragon, as I finish up the manuscript and Natasza starts character idea sketches. This book will feature a trans child and a non-binary adult. The story will be similar to I Wish I Were a Unicorn, with different character traits and values that are more focused on our inner power and intuition. We'll be doing another Kickstarter to fund the production, and we're hoping to be able to do that this Summer or Fall.
