Once Upon A Time, a little girl called Claire and her stuffed unicorn, Capricorn, were very fond of fairy tales. Every night Claire's father read them stories of frog princes and fairy princesses, and every night every character lived happily ever after. Then one evening, just as a story came to its close, Claire suddenly wondered: What, exactly, makes someone happy forever? It was a question to answer as she slept. So Claire hugged Capricorn, and together they drifted into a dreamland adventure....

Having worked as a nanny, this title is one that children, ages 3-8, would enjoy and want read to them over and over again. This is because the wonderful illustrations capture the imagination from the beginning. They are consistently awe-inspiring and support the story from beginning to end. Children will learn to read as they read this title because of the inviting format. The story relates to the thoughts of children in a meaningful way with enchanting illustrations. It is a title for their beginner home libraries and easy to take with them around the house or to school.

Claire and her dad discuss what makes a story happily ever after. Her dad says that she should think about it and tell him in the morning. Claire falls asleep and dreams that her unicorn Capricorn comes to life and takes her on an adventure. Claire and Capricorn travel to different fairy tales to ask characters what makes a story happy ever after. When Claire wakes up she decides it all depends because every story has a different ending. This is a great read aloud story because it is interesting and exciting. This book gives a funny twist to many fairy tales.

Primary, This is a good example of fantasy. It makes perect since that in this world the unicorn Capricorn could talk and fly. It did not seem out of place to find the Library Fairy or the frog prince. The story worked well given the setting. The theme of this book was very clear and important. It was the theme of different things make different people happy. This was clearly presented in the search for what makes someone "happy ever after" and Claire's answer at the end.

My sister is facinated by fairytale endings. She is 3 and she loved when I read this book to her. It gives a message to the readers that says humans define their own happiness.
