Itty-Bitty Kitty Corn

Itty-Bitty Kittycorn is a fun twist on the unicorn craze.

What’s cuter than a kitten and more fun than a unicorn? A Kitty Corn, of course! 

This fun and colorful book starts out with the line, “Kitty thinks she might be a unicorn”. 

Itty-Bitty Kittycorn is a fun book all about living your dreams.

She is proud to be a unicorn…unfortunately, none of her friends agree. They all insist she is a kitty. Then one day, Kitty meets a real unicorn and “feels no bigger than a ball of lint”.

Itty-Bitty Kittycorn is sad

She begins to slink away disappointed until the unicorn confesses that he is actually a kitty-corn and a beautiful friendship blossoms. 

Itty-Bitty Kittycorn shows the value of dreams and friendship.

This book is fun and silly and full of adorable illustrations. A fun addition to any preschool library.
