    After having a best friend who’s a unicorn for quite a while now, Phoebe discovers that unicorns have become popular and she’s not sure whether she’s okay with that or not. I, too, was into unicorns before they were cool so I understand where Phoebe is coming from. Marigold employs her skills as a tooth fairy negotiator. Like all parents do, whether they want to admit it or not, Phoebe’s dad attempts to customise her. Phoebe and Marigold enjoy a day out at the water park.

And my personal favourite, Claustrophoebea and Pointyhead make another long overdue appearance. [image error] [image error] I can’t believe I still love this series so much! This is the thirteenth time I’ve been allowed to see what lies beneath the Shield of Boringness and I’d hang out with Marigold and her human, Phoebe, again tomorrow if Marigold was inclined to magic up the fourteenth graphic novel by then. There’s a great blend of comics that explore things we already know in a new way, like Marigold’s obsession with her reflection, and entirely new, very important unicorn related information. Unicorn sneers will make 62% of your freckles fall off. We also discover what’s to blame for us not being able to get negative comments out of our heads. It was (view spoiler)[peanut butter (hide spoiler)] all along. Who would have suspected something that’s seemingly innocuous was capable of something so dastardly?! Thank you so much to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for the opportunity to fall in love with this graphic novel early. Blog - https://schizanthusnerd.com

    These are always so fun. It’s great to see another adventure happening with phoebe and her unicorns. This one deals with human trends, friendship, and even hats. I like seeing pheobd getting along with her enemy friend and they’ve learned to actually try to be friends. I absolutely love this series and can’t wait for more. Perfect for kids who love unicorns and graphic novels

    The "Phoebe and Her Unicorn" comics are some of my favorite comics -- essentially a more modern, slightly less philosophical "Calvin and Hobbes" with a girl and her unicorn instead of a boy and his tiger. And this collection of comics is just as entertaining as ever, with delightful artwork, plenty of humor, and shenanigans galore. And both kids and adults can enjoy this collection. Dana Simpson's artwork is quite good, nicely balancing style and detail.

Dana Simpson's artwork is quite good, nicely balancing style and detail. The characters are expressive and unique, and the design of the fantastic creatures such as the unicorns and the goblins are delightful. I do like that, unlike some comic and cartoon characters, Phoebe is able to wear a variety of outfits instead of the same outfit every strip, and still be distinctive enough to recognize. There's not an overarching story to this comic, but there are story arcs that manage to preserve the comic's continuity -- even referencing Voltina, a character that only appears in the graphic novels due to the art limitations of a daily comic strip. And while the story arcs are never terribly high-stakes -- stories include Marigold appearing on a unicorn radio show to talk about her time among humans, Phoebe's arch-nemesis Dakota receiving an award from the goblins she's unexpectedly befriended, and Marigold enjoying a waterpark for the first time -- they're still entertaining. The "Phoebe and Her Unicorn" comics are a delight for both kids and adults, and blend wit and whimsy to a degree not seen since Bill Watterson's iconic work. And while Phoebe and Marigold may not be as iconic as Calvin and Hobbes, they've still earned a place among the best comic strips out there.

    It’s always cause for celebration in our household when Dana Simpson announces a new release of the Phoebe and her Unicorn series. The latest in the series, Unicorn Famous, yet again, kept my daughter and I giggling. This one was harder to put down, and the phrase, “just a few more pages” was heard often at bedtime. In fact, Unicorn Famous had my daughter attempting to covertly skirt bedtime as she hid the book under the covers.

In fact, Unicorn Famous had my daughter attempting to covertly skirt bedtime as she hid the book under the covers. Simpson has an amazing talent of creating unique and relatable characters. My daughter can see her own Dad in the video gaming father, and she has classmates who remind her of Max, Phoebe, and Dakota. For this reason, my 9 year old adored seeing more of Dakota, but she lamented that there were less parts with Max. Which just goes to show, the more you read the series, the easier you fall in love with all the characters (even minor ones). We will eagerly await the next release of Phoebe and her Unicorn, and, until then, we will continue reliving Marigold’s adventures through rereading. I wanted to extend a huge thank you to Netgalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for an advanced reader’s copy in exchange for our honest review.

This really opened up my eyes on the relationship Phoebe and Marigold had with one another and Phoebe realizes how special and unique their relationship is. The dialogue and humor in the conversations with Phoebe and Marigold are so humorous and relatable which I believe is the reason why this series is so popular with our young reader community and the fact that Marigold is a very pretty unicorn thanks to the magnificent illustrations. We will consider adding this title to our JGraphic Novel collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

    Yes, this series is great for kids. But it's great for other people too. Everyone in our house -- that's two teens and two middle-aged adults -- loves it. This book is as good as all the others; I laughed out loud again and again while reading it. In a typical four-panel spread, three panels advance the plot, talk about the interpersonal problems of grade school life, or give background info on unicorn society.

And then that fourth panel just kills me -- making me snort or burst into laughter more often than not, and nearly always carrying a clever surprise. This volume will be joining all the others on our bookshelf -- though to be honest it will be found in the kids' rooms an awful lot of the time. Or on the floor. Or the sofa. Or in the bathroom. Because it's going to be read and enjoyed everywhere in the house.

We're 13 installments into the Phoebe and Her Unicorn series, and I'm still marveling at the number of insane ways Dana Simpson has Phoebe and Marigold interact. In fact, even when we get throw backs to prior plot points, they're hysterical Easter eggs for the people who've been reading and re-reading the previous volumes. I fear I will never get tired of this series. I hope it goes on forever.

    This installment in the series is as hilarious and adorable as ever. I realized (because my daughter is binge-watching My Little Pony in the next room) that I hear Marigold Heavenly Nostrils in my head as voiced by Rarity. Dakota remains my favorite of the side characters; her special brand of friendship always hovers on the edge of forming a true understanding with Phoebe...and then she says something snarky that reminds you that yes, she is that self-absorbed.

I could see her and Phoebe getting older and eventually leaving this weird relationship behind as Dakota finally decides not to be so committed to being cool--or maybe not. I look forward to more in this series (13 volumes and it still hasn't gotten old!).

    Another fabulous book from Dana Simpson. Though the stories show the life of a grade schooler, she doesn't talk down to them and even includes a glossary in every book because her vocabulary might be above their reading level. Phoebe and Marigold are back again talking about unicorn fashion and going to the goblin awards as well as a water park. We learn more about unicorn lore including what unicorns used to think about thunder and a story about caring what others think. One of my favorite story Another fabulous book from Dana Simpson.

    I have to admit that I requested this book from NetGalley in hopes that my daughter could read this. But it was only readable on my Netgalley app so she didn't get to read it. I read it and I have to say, there were some really amusing points. I've never read any of these books but I did find that Phoebe and Marigold the Unicorn's banter was really funny. And Marigold's super ego is hilarious.

I thought some of the parts were disjointed but honestly, it may be something that kids gravitate towards. The book seems to take 2-3 pages to go through one skit and then start a new skit. For my daughter who loves unicorns and humor, I think this would be a huge hit.

    This book was cute! I loved reading it as an adult and thought it was very funny. As a 5th-6th grade special education teacher, I thought some of the dialogue and conversations between characters were too advanced-almost as if this book was written for adults or teenagers. I am not sure I would choose to read this one aloud to my class. However, I do have some students that I know would still find this story humorous.

As always, the comics follow Phoebe and her best friend who just so happens to be a unicorn. The sense of humor is great and the artwork simple but easy to follow. Marigold is sassy and self-centered but she's really entertaining and has some great one-liners. She can get pretty dark too which makes the comics even funnier!

    Phoebe and Marigold Heavenly Nostrils ride again! Well, Phoebe rides anyway. Who doesn't love unicorns? And that is actually the first theme in this book. Is the Spell of Boringness broken? Unicorns are everywhere in the human world - not actual unicorns, just images of them. From there Marigold and Phoebe canter off on adventures that include dealing with the mean girl, goblins, even camouflage. Great art, and punch lines.

    DNF - Unicorn Famous is a graphic novel about a girl and her unicorn. I just wasn't able to get into the story. It was a bit bizarre for me and honestly I wasn't entirely sure what was going on. Having said that, I do think that it might appeal to tween and young teen girls. So just because I didn't personally like it, I think that it would be a good addition to a children's/YA collection.

    Solid installment to the Phoebe and her Unicorn series. I love that these comics are full of observations and life lessons without feeling preachy at all. Plus there’s a glossary at the end (Is that a new thing? It’s been a while since I’ve read one of this series) is good for helping kids expand their vocabulary.

    These Phoebe and Unicorn collections are always sweet and charming. They show the best of childhood without being overly saccharine. I’d recommend them even to an adult reader who just wants a few minutes escape from all the less pleasant parts of life.

    I read a portion of this book with my five year old daughter, who loves unicorns. Neither of us are the target audience for this book. It seems more appropriate as middle grade, but it was funny in parts for both of us anyway. Unicorn loving middle schoolers will surely love it.
