A story about seeing and believing wholeheartedly in the extraordinary—unicorns and oneself.
MANOLO & THE UNICORN

Cameron Kids/Abrams, April 2023
To Manolo the world is a magical place—a place where he searches for the most magical creature of all: a unicorn. Manolo loves unicorns. When the Wild Animal Parade is announced at school, and Manolo declares that he will come as his favorite animal, his classmates say there is no such thing as unicorns, making the world feel ordinary. That is, until Manolo meets a real unicorn—wild and graceful—and discovers that the world is truly extraordinary.
