Kévin la licorne est de retour dans une toute nouvelle aventure! Lorsqu’il apprendre qu’une licorne déménage dans la maison voisine, l’adorable Kévin est convaincu qu’ils doivent être les meilleurs amis du monde. Mais qu’arrive-t-il lorsque ces deux êtres ont plus de différences que de points communs? Peut-être que le dicton « les contraires s’attirent » n’est pas toujours vrai... Une histoire qui dépeint avec honnêteté les nouvelles rencontres et les rouages de l’amitié.


Kévin the unicorn is back in a new adventure! When he finds out that a new unicorn is moving in next door, the lovable Kévin just knows that they’ll be the best of friends. But what happens when they end up having more differences than similarities? Maybe it’s not always true that opposites attract...

An honest story about friendship, meeting new people, and the acceptance of each other’s freedoms and differences. We can’t be friends with everyone, because we are all different, and that’s okay.

Original title: Kevin the Unicorn: Why Can’t We Be Friends

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Kevin the Unicorn: It's Not All Rainbows:“Blending the timeless wisdom of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day with a slight parody of current trends, this picture book is an excellent antidote to the cult of positive thinking. Slightly subversive and a lot of fun.” — Kirkus Reviews“Earnestly proving that even unicorns can have terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days… ‘And,’ von Innerebner concludes, ‘that’s okay.’” — Booklist
