Connie tells this story about her big sister Frankie and herself and their obsession with unicorns. They play unicorns all the time, even at breakfast and when Connie, who uses a wheelchair, is being dressed by Frankie and their Dad. One Saturday they are playing farmer unicorns when the doorbell rings. It is Ada and Colin from next door, and they want to play. This is not entirely welcome to the girls because they know all about Ada’s bossiness – which she proceeds to display. First, she tells everyone that they must make a unicorn palace of wonder, and she insists that Connie be part of the wall while sitting in her wheelchair. Hardly pleasant for Connie! Then she announces that she will be queen of the unicorns and Connie and Colin must be sleeping unicorns. Soon there is rebellion amongst the ranks, and the other three ‘bash down the walls’ and become a ‘bad unicorn train’ out of the door and away. This produces angry tears in bossy Ada, but her little brother tells her, ‘You were a bad queen’, and Frankie tells everyone, ‘We have all been bad unicorns’. ‘Let’s be good unicorns together!’ adds Connie, so they are, and have a big unicorn party. Great fun with its diverse cast of characters and a comic-style approach.
