Simon & Schuster

B.G. Hennessy’s Claire and the Unicorn Happy Ever After (Simon & Schuster) is a charming tale which explores the universal question of what constitutes a person’s contentment. The title character embarks on an imaginary journey with her toy unicorn to learn what makes various people and creatures happy. She discovers that happiness takes many forms: peace and quiet; a comfortable bed; or nice, juicy flies. Montreal artist Susan Mitchell illustrated the text with watercolours in which she incorporates small, clever touches that convey subtle humour. mRb
