Dave Eggers


Age range 5 to 10

Dutch is a horse. A small horse, but a horse nonetheless. Even when, one day, someone has the wise idea to strap a horn to her head and call her a unicorn.

Even with all the photo shoots and birthday parties and children on her back, even with all the attention and love and admiration she gets, Dutch can't shake the feeling that something's not right.

So, unicorn horn still strapped to her head, she leaves the only home she's known. Dutch is a proud horse, after all. There may be a few hurdles along her path, but no one can stop her from finding her truth.
