¡La primera espectacular aventura de Cloe y su unicornio! ¿Crees en los unicornios? Cloe sí. Todo empezó cuando lanzó una piedra a un lago y le dio en la cara a un unicornio, lo cual le concedía a la pequeña un deseo. Entonces, Cloe pidió que el unicornio, Caléndula Nariz Celestial, se convirtiera en sumejor amiga. De aquí surgió una gran amistad entre ellas. ¿Podrán una niña precoz y una mágica criatura del bosque encontrar algo en común? ¡Claro que sí! Aquí tienes la prueba y sus divertidas aventuras. ¡Una espectacular novela gráfica protagonizada por Cloe y su unicornio! ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "Phoebe is a remarkably real little girl, as bright and imaginative as Bill Watterson's Calvin, as touchingly vulnerable as Charles Schulz's Charlie Brown. And if these strike you as big names to conjure with, I'll go further and state for the record that in my opinion Heavenly Nostrils is nothing less than the best comic strip to come along since Calvin and Hobbes. Simpson is that good, and that original." -Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn, from the Introduction A boy and his dog . . . a girl and her . . . unicorn? It all started when a girl named Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond and accidentally hit a unicorn in the face. Improbably, this led to Phoebe being granted one wish, and she used it to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. But can a vain mythical beast and a nine-year-old daydreamer really forge a connection? Indeed they can, and that's how Phoebe and Her Unicorn unfolds. This beautifully drawn comic strip follows the unlikely friendship between a somewhat awkward girl and the magic unicorn who gradually shows her just how special she really is. Through hilarious adventures where Phoebe gets to bask in Marigold's "awesomeness," the friends also come to acknowledge that they had been lonely before they met and truly appreciate the bond they now share.
