Laughs, life lessons, and a splash of Tiffany Haddish make this an entertaining read. Layla, the Last Black Unicorn is colorful, vibrant, and features characters popular among young readers: unicorns, fairies, and other magical beings. Jerdine Nolen's storytelling and Tiffany Haddish's hilarity combine for an age-old story with a modern-day flair that grown-ups -- both fans of the popular comedian and those not familiar -- will also appreciate. Through all the amusement, the important message to be yourself rings loud and clear.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
