'The trouble started on the morning of Trumpet's first birthday, when a bump began to grow at the top of his forehead.' Until this moment, Trumpet has always been one of the gang. But when his forehead suddenly begins to sprout a horn, he finds himself isolated from the other horses. He is suddenly clumsy, getting his horn caught in trees and accidentally poking other horses in the eye. Trumpet is laughed at and then abandoned, and feels miserable for being so different.

And this is only the beginning of Trumpet's story...

Publishers Weekly, 2005-10-10 Kressley, best known as the fashion stylist on TV's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, encourages readers to embrace their individuality in this chipper riff on The Ugly Duckling, set on a horse farm. When an orphaned colt with a snow-white coat and super-loud whinny (earning him the name Trumpet) arrives on the scene one spring, the other foals treat him like a brother. But as time passes and Trumpet begins to grow a horn on his forehead, the ponies ostracize him, whispering nasty comments like "Icky" and "Weird!" The ensuing painful loneliness leads Trumpet to believe that "Different is awful." A fire in the barn, however, proves an opportunity for Trumpet to save the day and demonstrate just how super it is being a "different" pony-nay, unicorn. Kressley's message-driven text gallops along nicely, accented by perky vocabulary and universal emotions (those familiar with the author can almost hear him say of the ponies, "In the fall they discovered scrum-diddly-umptious apples together"). Lee's (the Black Lagoon series) wiry black-and-white ink drawings ring both poignant and humorous notes. The small trim size makes this an attractive choice for sharing or gift giving. Ages 3-8.
