The 2020 Unicorn Report

I thought the unicorn wave crested in 2019.

I could not have been more wrong.

It’s 2020 and everything is coming up ‘corn.

  1. The fifth book in The Unicorn Rescue Society by Adam Gidwitz comes out next month, too! (Though no actual unicorns have shown up in the series so far)

  2. This. Is. Insane.

    And, coincidentally, my favorite post of 2020.

  3. I just came across this, and had to scroll back up to make sure it wasn’t an April Fools day post. I love unicorns, probably more than your usual adult female children’s librarian, but some of these are just ridiculous. And now off I go add several of them to my next book order. LOL.
