The fifth book in A Unicorn Named Sparkle series is about finding out there's no perfect way to say "I love you."

Lucy and a unicorn named Sparkle are back for another funny and sweet adventure.

Valentine’s Day is when you tell the people in your life how much you love them. There's no one Sparkle loves more than Lucy. He decides to make her the perfect valentine. Except, instead of hands, Sparkle has hooves. He can't write and he can't cut. So how is he going to show Lucy that he loves her best of all?

"The book’s text is charming and understatedly witty, and the illustrations are both humorous and sweet. The story’s message of self-acceptance is perfectly suited for young readers whose creative visions don’t yet match their abilities. A sweet and funny Valentine’s Day read." —Kirkus Reviews

"The watercolor-and-ink cartoon illustrations delightfully depict brown-skinned Lucy, with her spiraling black curls, and her goatlike companion. Readers whose skills do not yet meet their expectations will resonate with Sparkle’s experience. VERDICT The message that one need not be perfect to be loved is an excellent one to share during Valentine’s Day story hours." —School Library Journal
