It's Christmas, and to Lucy that means "lots and lots of PRESENTS!" Lucy buys gifts for her "unicorn" (read: goat) Sparkle but is hurt on Christmas morning when it seems Sparkle didn't get anything for her. Like its predecessors (A Unicorn Named Sparkle etc.), the book imparts a valuable lesson in a child-appropriate way; the cheery illustrations layer in some festive red and green.

In Sparkle's third book, the "unicorn" is getting ready for Christmas under the tutelage of Lucy, a vivacious girl with wiry black curls. Actually, Sparkle is eating the Christmas preparations because, despite his unicorn horn (it resembles a cone-shaped birthday hat), there's a good chance he's actually a goat. Lucy gets Sparkle presents at "the unicorn store," but Lucy is disappointed to find no gift from Sparkle on Christmas morning, and he eats the stockings and pulls down the Christmas tree. After shouting and tears, it turns out Sparkle did get her a gift, and it's the most magical of all. The relationship between Sparkle and Lucy remains perfectly enchanting. Ages 2–6. (Sept.)
