Join Alison McLennan for a magical unicorn party to launch her picture book Great and Small. Allison will host storytime, reading her new book and answer a Q&A. Have all sorts of fun - get your facepainted, pose in the unicorn photo booth, create your own unicorn craft, get a party bag and have a unicorn cookie!

For a tiny unicorn, Eunice has big dreams.

She really wants to compete in the Great Unicorn Games, but even with all the effort and practice she can muster, she's just no competition for all these able-bodied athletes. That's when the most wonderful idea turns into a truly great reality.

A celebration of universal design and our unique abilities, Great and Small celebrates what unifies us - our glorious diversity.
