Princess Magnolia is having hot chocolate and scones with Duchess Wigtower when….wait a minute, wait a minute. Duchess Wigtower? How awesome a name is that? And it doesn’t end there.
How can you not love a book with a passage like this:
In the courtyard, Frimplepants was nibbling an apple. He swished his sparkly tail. He pranced on his golden hooves. He gave the horn upon his brow a little toss.
Clearly, Frimplepants was a unicorn.
Or was he?
Stupendous! Isn’t the suspense killing you? Was he or wasn’t he a unicorn??
