In this effervescent unicorn expos , Atkinson introduces the four "top unicorn scientists" (lab-coat-clad unicorns themselves), who break down the basics of unicorn-ology. With the essential unicorn anatomy and classification charts on hand (or hoof), the scientists discuss unicorn horns ("Made of 50% magic, 45% mystery, and 5% sugar, unicorn horns are full of unknown and unpredictable powers"), diets, social behavior, varieties, and habitats. An art gallery depicts framed portraits of "history's most famous unicorns," with names such as "Buttercup Sparklecheeks," while another spread offers a cross-section of a unicorn home, its occupants relaxing in a tub, tucked into a rainbow and cloud bed, and reading in a ball pit. Atkinson illustrates in a frenetic cartoon art style, with the bug-eyed, bushy-maned unicorn scientists front-and-center. Readers, too, can earn an advanced degree, with a final spread of this enjoyably off-the-wall story, featuring a "Unicornius Scientificus Diploma." Ages 3 7.
