Meet your unicorn best friend and have amazing adventures together, solving mysteries and righting wrongs, and all the time looking after Unicorn Island and preserving its magical balance for future generations? Julie and Linda have created a rainbow-coloured world full of friendship, fun and just the right amount of peril… This series has been a runaway success for us, capturing children's imaginations across the world."
