The spring that Trumpet was born, there were so many new foals in the pasture that almost no one notices there was a sassy little colt who didn't belong to any of the mares.... Fab Five phenom Carson Kressley brings us the story of a one-of-a-kind pony who learns that it's our differences that make us super. Whimsical black-and-white illustrations from renowned equine artist Jared Lee corral both humor and charm in this warm tale of a unicorn struggling to find his identity and place in the world.
Carson Kressley galloped onto the scene as a stylist for Polo Ralph Lauren in New York and then became the self-proclaimed "miracle worker" of fashion in Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which airs on Bravo. A magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Gettysburg College, he received degrees in finance and fine art. Carson is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Off the Cuff. He is a nationally ranked competitive equestrian who lives in New York City. This is his first book for children.
Jared Lee has been delighting young and old with his exuberant illustrations for more than thirty years.

Jared is the illustrator of Mike Thaler's popular Teacher from the Black Lagoon series as well as numerous other picture books and beginning readers. In addition to his extensive publishing career, he runs a company that sells T-shirts, mugs, and stationery dedicated to one of his loves -- horses. Jared lives in southwest Ohio with his wife, P. J., and a huge menagerie that includes horses, dogs, cats, ducks, and bluegills.
