Description

Tilly Teasel loves working at the Unicorn Rescue Centre but what she really wants, more than anything else, is a unicorn of her very own.

When Splodge shows up at the centre, looking a bit scruffy and a little sad, Tilly decides he’s perfect! When she brings him home, however, Mr and Mrs Teasel aren’t so convinced especially when he eats Mr Teasel’s slippers, whines all night and gets sparkly hoof prints all over the sofa! Will Tilly convince her parents that all Splodge needs is a little training?

A touching story about patience, perseverance and the responsibility of owning a pet.   

Beautifully illustrated, QED’s Storytime series introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories. Featuring charming animal and human characters, the books explore important social and emotional themes like friendship, gratitude, perseverance and overcoming fears. A Next Steps page at the back provides guidance for parents and teachers.

The author

Amanda Brandon lives with her husband and two children in Essex. She was born and educated in the county and spent 13 years as a newspaper journalist before turning to writing for children. She enjoys reading, writing and dancing (although has yet to try all three at the same time!)

Mike Byrne grew up on the Wirral near Liverpool, England, before moving to Wales to study Illustration at Glyndwr University. He began his career as a designer for a greetings card company and then became a studio manager for a licensed stationery designer before leaving to fulfil his dream of illustrating children's books. Mike now lives in the countryside with his wife, cat and his two baby sons where he spends his days doodling and illustrating children's books fuelled only by tea and biscuits.
