"Luna gave me a big sloppy donut kiss. My face felt sticky and I smiled so wide. Luna bowed her head to thank me for making her a unicorn.

Luna told me to look up at the sky every night. If I saw a blue star, that was her horn. She would see me and smile right back.

I watched Luna fly away, over the unicorn forest, but I was not sad. I knew she would always be close by, and would be happy as a unicorn."


"This book is a must-own for all children. It very poignantly addresses the subject of loss for young readers, and the never-ending relationships we create with those we love. Another masterful work by Diana Tuorto, and a wonderful new addition to any home or public collection."

—Jennifer Williams, NY

"My five year old daughter and I loved this beautiful story. It is well written and easy to understand for young readers. We enjoyed the illustrations as well. I highly recommend adding this to your library for all horse and unicorn lovers!"

"We lost our stepfather in October 2020 and our 4 year-old daughter was having a hard time understanding the loss of her Papa. This book helped breach the topic in a sweet, easily understandable way that helped bridge the conversation.

I received the book shortly after his passing and had a hard time getting through the story as an adult because it was too raw at the time. We waited for Christmas and approached it when the loss was less "new."

Our daughter frequently asks to read this book and has memorized a few pages already because it has her favorite topics...donuts and unicorns! Highly recommend."

—Candice Moleff, NJ

"A wonderful book for children and all equine lovers!"
