Summary from QED
Each book consists of an adventure story with a main character, and puzzles to solve. Puzzles, searches and mazes are combined with ‘look and find’ and ‘friend to spot’ features. A page of easy yet fun activities can be found at the end of each book. Highly reusable, no pens needed. Solve each puzzle on your way through fantastical settings and brilliant stories! Trace through mazes with your finger and help each character and their faithful friends on their adventure...Different kinds of puzzles help to develop key skills of memory, visual recognition and deduction skills.

Nayuleska's thoughts
I love this even more than another book in the series, the Mermaid Puzzles book! If you love magic and all things girly (think vibrant rainbow colours, lots of cuteness) then this is the book for you. Every page has Betty the Butterfly to find, 3 items and a puzzle which can be a maze, a spot the difference or finding specific items. There is lots for the reader to see, the images certainly fired up my imagination. I adore how the unicorns have a colour coordinated main and symbol on both their head and their back - this reminded me a little of My Little Pony, an anime series which I'm fond of. There are two other books in the series about astronauts and knights - I just hope more girl orientated ones will be released because this Unicorn book is so awesome!)

Suggested read
Definitely check out the other books in the series like Mermaid Puzzles (review to follow soon)
