Reviews

"A heartwarming and sparkly story of friendship. Angus is a lovable and charmingly original character, and his story holds an important message: we all glow a little more brightly when we are able to be ourselves."--Robin Stevenson, award-winning author Pride: Celebrating Diversity & Community
"At once unique, but understandable…Angus' experience will also bring hope to those who may feel like a lone unicorn in a herd of horses."--Resource Links
"Smith's story accomplishes some great things: It introduces readers to new reach-word vocabulary, and Angus' love of sparkle isn't tied directly to sexuality or gender identity, allowing it to reach the heterosexual cis boys who love a little glitz and glimmer."--Kirkus Reviews
&quotA heartwarming story that emphasizes the individuality and creativity that each child brings to the world and the challenges children face as they try to communicate their uniqueness to others.&quot--CM Magazine
"The tale is one of inclusion, acceptance, diversity, friendship, and kindness, but all are subtly included and take a back seat to the story. This book's sweet message leaves you glowing from the inside out, just like Angus."--Booklist
"Charming illustrations accompany a text that celebrates differences--and friends that embrace all of yours."--The Horn Book Online
