Fans of the magical unicorn are legion, and the unicorn's appearance in pop culture shows no signs of waning. This book presents light-hearted, slightly twisted, and always funny practical uses for a unicorn. Everyone loves unicorns-what's not to love. They're beautiful, magical creatures. Author Robb Pearlman and illustrator Dave Urban join twistedly hilarious forces once again to create 101 Ways to Use a Unicorn, their follow-up to 101 Ways to Kill a Zombie. This latest book is a manual of sorts, detailing creative ways to employ the neighbourhood unicorn in everyday life. The methods range from the practical to pop cultural to slightly dark-but all are laugh-out-loud funny: Hunger Games (the unicorn is an arrow being shot out of a longbow by a teenage girl); Bookmark (the unicorn's horn is between the pages of a closed book on a nightstand); Clothesline (a clothesline is strung between the side of a house and the unicorn horn, as a housewife hangs clothes); Award Ceremony Seat Filler (the unicorn is in a tuxedo, seated between Angelina Jolie and Meryl Streep); and Jedi (the unicorn's horn is lit up like a light saber in a fight with Darth Vader).
Equal parts satire and tribute to this beloved mythical animal, 101 Ways to Use a Unicorn is sure to tickle unicorn fans young and old.
