Audible Originals, August 2019

Mote the Unicorn, possibly the last unicorn anywhere, lives in the city of Anyville, and wants to start a band. This being Anyville, this isn't as unreasonable an ambition as you might imagine, although guitars and other string instruments are not something he can manage. Keyboard instruments, though, he's a wiz at.

In the midst of a very strange storm, he recruits a drummer, Rick the Giant. They find a manager, Betsy the Spider, who really digs their sound and is good at all the organizational and promotional stuff they aren't good at.

But they still need a guitarist.

They find Princess Rainbow (first name Princess, last name Rainbow) in the midst of another strange storm. And it retreats when she scolds it, though she seems uncomfortable and defensive about the whole thing.

It's not long before they're a band, having a great time jamming and writing music, while Betsy is pushing them to book some dates and perform in public. They're reluctant, never sure they're ready. But Betsy secretly puts together a demo tape, and soon their troubles and adventures have just begun.

This is silly, fast-paced, and a lot of fun. Target audience is kids 8-10, but don't let that stop you from enjoying it.


I received this free as part of the Audible Originals program, and am reviewing it voluntarily.
