The teeny-weeny unicorn / Shawn Harris.


Once upon a time, in a land where horses were mythical beasts, there lived a unicorn - a Teeny-Weeny Unicorn. He lived with his family in a palace - one that was extra-large for him, full of extra-large rugs and extra-large food. And when his brother and sister played chess, they used him in place of a pawn. When it's just too much to take, Teeny-Weeny Unicorn runs away - and has a chance encounter with a salty gnome. It's then that he suddenly starts to wonder... IS he teeny weeny? Or is he just the right size? Every kid will relate to Teeny-Weeny Unicorn, as he figures out how to live in a world not made for his stature. With wit and charm, as well as delightful illustrations, Shawn Harris creates a modern classic made for sharing - be it at bedtime or on a story time rug.-- Amazon.
