Beschreibung

One year has passed since Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond, accidentally hit a unicorn in the face, and was granted a single wish—which she used to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. In some ways, not much has changed. At school Phoebe still clashes with her rival--and sometimes “frenemy”--he ever-taunting and imperious Dakota. Outside of school, she still fills her free time with extra-credit homework assignments, dramatic monologues about the injustices associated with school cliques, and imaginative conspiracy theories regarding global forces like the “powerful construction paper lobby.” But unlike before, Phoebe now has a best friend to share it with—someone to make her laugh and to listen to all her extravagant ideas.
 In this second volume of Dana Simpson's Phoebe and Her Unicorn series, titled, Unicorn on a Roll, the reader is invited on a journey into the lives of Phoebe and Marigold as they navigate the difficulties of grade school, celebrate the winter holidays, and explore their super hero/super villain personas together. Join in the fun, as Phoebe competes against Dakota for the leading role of “Lisa Ladybug” in their fourth-grade play—or as she struggles to “manage” the PR debacle related to her nose-picking-scandal. (“I will neither confirm nor deny the events surrounding Boogergate.”) Witness a band of unicorns staging an “intervention” and learn all the details of Marigold’s secret crush on a mysterious creature she has never seen. Perhaps most important, watch as this surprising friendship between a charming, nine-year-old dreamer and a vain, mythical beast forever changes both of them for the better.

Unicorn on a Roll - Dana Simpson

INTRODUCTION

It was not long ago that if I suggested you should check out a clever, funny, sweet daily comic about a girl and her unicorn, I would have had to endure some eye rolls and serious questions about my maturity level.

But the times, they are a-changin’. Dana Simpson’s Phoebe and Her Unicorn has arrived at just the right time to perpetuate an unprecedented shift in opinion and openness to the genuine thoughts, feelings, experiences—and humor—in the lives of authentic girls.

In modern media, women and girls are finally starting to be seen as regular plain old human beings. Fifty years ago—heck, fifteen years ago—almost any depiction of a young girl would be some sort of hyperidealized version of childhood femininity. Girls in comics and cartoons were either precocious little sprites; bossy, irritating nags; or ethereal, fragile beauties, even at their tender ages. They were characters created by observers and idealizers, and because of this vantage, the audience watched them from a distance. But the characterization of Phoebe is indicative of a very recent, very new, very

    Love this cute graphic novel. Phoebe and Marigold Heavenly Nostrils are awesome!

    Recounts the further adventures of Phoebe and her unicorn friend, Marigold Heavenly Nostril.

    An adorable comic strip about a girl and her snarky, prissy unicorn friend. It's easily comparable to a female "Calvin and Hobbes." Phoebe and her unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, are a hilarious duo. Strangely enough, I found myself imagining Phoebe being voiced by Tina Fey and Marigold being voiced by Amy Poehler.

    Great for kids, comic fans, MLP fans (Brony or otherwise), and anyone who loves unicorns.

    69-73. The spelling bee. "Pyrrhic". Ironic. So. Much. Funny. In just four short pages. And the whole book is like that--full of jokes that will fly right over the heads of most of its targeted readership, but will make adults gigglesnort. Also, unicorns appear to be a bit like Pirates in that everything they do--magic, snark, manipulation, what-have-you--is explained simply as "Unicorn."

    "Unicorns are more powerful than tater tots!"

    I want volume three nownownow.

    Please?

    So it's not "Calvin and Hobbes", but this strip, about a 9-year-old girl, Phoebe, and her innocently egocentric unicorn, Marigold, has a lot of charm, wit and humor, occasionally reaching the heights so frequently ascended by that great strip. Phoebe is not quite a typical young girl, smarter than most in her class, looked down on as weird by many of them, especially rich society girl Dakota, who eventually becomes kind of a "frenemy". And if there's a character in comic strips so charmingly full of herself as Marigold, I can't think of it.
