Description View

"Phoebe is a remarkably real little girl, as bright and imaginative as Bill Watterson's "Calvin," as touchingly vulnerable as Charles Schulz's "Charlie Brown." And if these strike you as big names to conjure with, I'll go further and state for the record that in my opinion "Heavenly Nostrils "is nothing less than the best comic strip to come along since "Calvin and Hobbes. "Simpson is that good, and that original."
--Peter S. Beagle, author of "The Last Unicorn," from the Introduction
A boy and his dog . . . a girl and her . . . unicorn?
It all started when Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond and accidentally hit a unicorn in the face. Improbably, this led to Phoebe being granted one wish, and she used it to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. But can a vain mythical beast and a nine-year-old daydreamer really forge a connection? Indeed they can, and that's how "Phoebe and Her Unicorn" unfolds.
This beautifully drawn strip follows the unlikely friendship between a somewhat awkward girl and the unicorn who gradually shows her just how special she really is. Through hilarious adventures where Phoebe gets to bask in Marigold's "awesomeness," the friends also come to acknowledge that they had been lonely before they met and truly appreciate the bond they now share.
