Summary

Summary

The magical friendship of Phoebe and her best friend, unicorn Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, is back in this second adventure of a girl and her mythical creature!

One year has passed since Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond, accidentally hit a unicorn in the face, and was granted a single wish - which she used to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. In some ways, not much has changed. But unlike before, Phoebe now has a best friend to share her days with - someone to make her laugh and to listen to all her extravagant ideas.

In this second volume of Heavenly Nostrils the reader is invited on a journey into the lives of Phoebe and Marigold as they navigate the difficulties of school, celebrate the winter holidays, and explore their super hero/super villain personas together. Join in the fun, as Phoebe competes against Dakota for the leading role of 'Lisa Ladybug' in their fourth-grade play - or as she struggles to 'manage' the PR debacle related to her nose-picking scandal. ("I will neither confirm nor deny the events surrounding Boogergate.") Witness a band of unicorns staging an 'intervention' and learn all the details of Marigold's secret crush on a mysterious creature she has never seen. Perhaps most important, watch as this surprising friendship between a charming, nine-year-old dreamer and a vain, mythical beast forever changes both of them for the better.


Author Notes

Dana Claire Simpson grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington, drawing the entire time. She eventually graduated from The Evergreen State College, despite having spent all her time drawing, and not always for credit. Attempts at doing real work along the way are hardly worth mentioning; the relevant fact is that, from 1998 to 2008, she drew the internet comic strip Ozy and Millie . After winning the Amazon-sponsored Comic Strip Superstar Contest in 2009, Universal Uclick signed her to a development deal for Heavenly Nostrils , which was later renamed Phoebe and Her Unicorn . She currently lives in the Seattle area with her tech genius husband and her fairly stupid cat.

Booklist Review

Phoebe and her not-so-imaginary unicorn friend, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, are back in this follow-up to Phoebe and Her Unicorn (2014). It's been a year since Phoebe's wish to be Marigold's best friend was granted, and their relationship has become quite comfortable. Whether dealing with first crushes, school plays, boogergate, or wondering if humans are good or bad (Marigold thinks that humans are . . . human. Unavoidably, lamentably, somewhat nauseatingly human) Phoebe always has a friend to rely on, and Marigold always has someone to admire her extraordinary beauty, her clever wit, and her exceptional modesty. The character designs for Phoebe and Marigold are charming, and the artwork is admirably consistent. As with volume 1, the comparison to Calvin and Hobbes is apt it has a joke-a-day format with recurring themes and gentle, winning humor that often results in guffaws. Also like Calvin and Hobbes, there is a thin veneer of snarky cynicism that will keep older readers interested in the stories well beyond most children's magical-unicorn-loving phase.--Volin, Eva Copyright 2015 Booklist
