  • This was such a cute story!! Gloria grew up in a children's home sheltered from the world because of a facial deformity. One day she meets a Unicorn named Sir Louie who teaches her to read and they go on magical adventures but most importantly Gloria eventually learns the magic of self-love and confidence! This book sends a great message to children! Children with deformities or disabilities can learn about loving themselves even if they are different and other children can learn that just becau [...]


  • Love is a wondrous thing and this book teaches children just how powerful it can be. Gloria lives in a home for children with Miss Libby. She overheard Miss Libby telling Miss Fay how she ended up at the lodge. It totally tore Gloria's heart out to learn the truth. She is already living with so many issues, including her disfigurement, so she is distraught. Her sadness reaches out to a magical unicorn that specializes in pure happiness. Sir Louie will teach her to always count on love to overcom [...]


  • An excellent children's book with depth and morals, Gloria and the Unicorn is a must read. The author expertly weaves advice, morals, and wisdom into a fun and easy-to-digest story for children. She details a whimsical adventure along with real-life happenings in a little girl's life who has been struck by adversity. It's an uplifting and relevant story that gives a voice to and advice for children with disadvantages, although I think all children can relate. A very well-done story.


  • Gloria is a six-year-old child with a facial disfigurement. Her mother died giving birth to her, and Gloria blames herself. She sees the disfigurement as a daily reminder of what she did to her mother. Keeping this belief a secret, she is sombre to the point where she feels she is unlovable.Living in a children’s home, the owner decides it better not to send Gloria to school because she is different and feels she would be bullied. Though Gloria works in the home, she cannot find a real purpose [...]


  • Thank you for the copy I won! Very cute little story about the trials we have to deal with in life. Gloria's unicorn helps her come to terms with the things she cannot change, and embrace herself for the lovely, bright girl she is. Great story for girls or boys ever, who struggle with who they are or how they look.


  • This was a delightful children's book. Gloria was different to normal children as she had a face that drooped down on one side. She meets a unicorn who helps her to understand that being different is okay.I loved the message this book relayed to its young readers. It encouraged them to be happy rather than dwell on the sadness in life. I particularly like that in the story, both Gloria and the unicorn, encourage the reader to think happy thoughts to get them out of a situation.I will certainly g [...]


  • Gloria has no idea who her parents are because at birth she was taken in by a children's home. It's only after overhearing two of her caregivers that she learns the truth that her mother died at birth and she suffered a deformity on her face she has had ever since. The ladies who take care of her have decided she should be homeschooled to protect her from bullies. Now Gloria becomes friends with a Unicorn named Sir Louie who takes her on many adventures that she believes are dreams. The story is [...]


  • Gloria is different from the other kids but ok with her difference, until she over hears how it came to be. What happens next is a wonderful journey as she comes to terms.My grandkids (4, 7, 9) really enjoyed the book and took turns reading it. They loved the pictures and especially the Unicorn. Fun read the oldest two took turns reading.Our first read by this author and hopefully the first of many.


  • A lovely children's book with a wonderful message.The book encourages its readers to be happy and to love themselves.Gloria looks different from other children, but thanks to Sir Louie, a magical unicorn, she learns to accept that it's ok to be different.

  • Some of my favorite books when I was little were The littlest Unicorn, The Last Unicorn, and The Unicorn and the Dragon, so when I was offered an advanced reader copy of Gloria and the Unicorn, it harkened back to my youth and I just couldn't say no! This is a really cute early mid-grade story dealing with empathy, self-esteem, love, and fear. I loved it! Although it is geared more towards early readers (I would say 1st-3rd grade) my 13 year old saw me reading it, and asked if he could read it t [...]


  • Well, I thought this was a lovely book. It starts with Gloria being sad because she isn't like anyone else, and finding out about her mother, then thinking it was all her fault. She makes a wish. With that wish, a unicorn hears her sadness and goes on a mission to assist her in being happy again. During that time, Gloria finds the truth about her mother, and resolves to stop the guilt. She also meets wizards who want to harm her for having the power to travel to other worlds in her books. My dau [...]
