Published: Roaring Brook Press - August 11th, 2020

In a world saturated with unicorn books, THE UNICORN CAME TO DINNER is a breath of fresh air. With clever, Lemony Snicket-esque prose and hilarious antics, DeStefano helps readers explore worry and anxiety through a silly story about a poorly-mannered (but very well-meaning) unicorn. Gaia Cornwall's gorgeous pastel illustrations add a touch of whimsy that will delight young readers and parents alike. This is a truly unique tale about having the courage (and patience!) to face your fears.
