A not-to-be missed event for parents with their three to six-year-olds! Join local children’s author and illustrator Jason Tharp as he launches his latest picture book, It’s Okay To Be A Unicorn. This inspiring book features a unicorn pretending to be a horse—until he learns to embrace his true self.
Bexley Public Library is Gramercy’s Community Partner for this program.
Cornelius J. Sparklesteed is known among all the other horses in Hoofington for his beautiful and creative handmade hats. But Cornelius is hiding a secret under his own tall, pointy hat: He’s really a unicorn. Hoofington is a friendly place, but its horses pass on lots of mean rumors about unicorns. When Cornelius is chosen to perform for this year’s Hoofapalooza, will he find the courage to show everyone his unicorniness? It's Okay To Be A Unicorn is an inspiring story about the rainbow magic of kindness.
Jason Tharp has dreamed of being an author and creating wacky worlds with fun characters since he was a kid. Now as a grown-up kid, Jason is driven to help others embrace the magic of their story. Being an obsessive daydreamer and doodler has led him to create many licensed properties, write books, and design clothing and travel the country talking to kids and adults about embracing their “weirdness” and the power of the unicorn effect. His work includes the Peachy & Keen and Super Monsta Friends series for Scholastic, National Geographic Kids' Funny Fill-Ins, and the Hog Mollies for the nonprofit 2nd & 7 Foundation.
