The Unicorn Riding Camp summary from Amazon (S&S didn't have the full blurb at the time of writing the review. I don't receive anything from mentioning Amzon)
In this enchanting story Evie and Diamond are invited to take part in a riding camp high up in the Cloud Kingdom. Can Evie and their new friends help a runaway unicorn and it's rider find their way home before a storm arrives?
I adore the picture book series starring Princess Evie, so was squee-ing very loudly in my head when I saw that they'd become a chapter book! Whoohoo! More excitement with magical ponies. There's still plenty of the super cute illustrations which are all any fairy/princess fangirl could want (especially with the costume changes). In some ways I prefer this series because it delves more into the details which sometimes I'd been craving in the picture book. Her beloved kitten Sparkles is still her trusty companion as she is whisked away on an adventure.
Book #1: The Forest Fairy Pony was pretty much a training camp for the forest fairies - I desperately wanted to have their powers! The fairies Princess Evie meets are new and nervous - I like how they were made to feel more at ease with each other, and how they helped each other out when the task got a bit tricky.
Book #2: The Unicorn Riding Camp is even more awesome! I mean who wouldn't want to camp out with the unicorns? It's not all idyllic as there is an extremely mean girl who causes Princess Evie a few problems, but it's still wonderful and I wanted to be there, cheering Princess Evie on as she does her best to help save the day.
