From the master of rhyme comes a sweet tale of an alpaca who turns into a unicorn!

Now here’s a tall tale (in fact it’s a cracker)

all about Frank, a curious alpaca.
Although Frank’s daily life appeared simple enough,
Frank was soooo nervous, it made things quite tough!

Frank lives in a petting zoo, full of wonderful cuddly animals and the children who visit them. But he feels like he doesn’t fit in and he hides so the children can’t laugh at him and his silly ears.

But one day he discovers a book about unicorns . . . and wakes up to a horn (ice-cream cone) on his head! His dream has come true – he is a fabulous unicorn and feels loved and confident in himself. And when he performs a daring rescue he comes to see that he is perfect just the way he is.

Adorable black and white illustrations on every page from debut illustrator India Joseph.
