Feature Friday: Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great


I've been anticipating this book since last Fall and it didn't let me down. Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great by Bob Shea has got to be my favorite book of 2013 so far. The story is about this poor goat who is ridiculously jealous of this unicorn who can make it rain cupcakes, can fly, and turns stuff into gold. 

I feel like the goat when I look at this book! Bob Shea is super funny and his illustrations are so great. Bob typically does primarily digital illustrations but for this book he dappled in watercolor, ink and pencil. The result is really appealing to me. There is such a nice looseness and energy. This is coupled with incredible design. Take a peek inside HERE!

Also, HERE is an awesome trailer for the book.
And below is a different story about a unicorn by Bob Shea.


That Bob Shea must think he is pretty great. He should!
