Sing Like A Unicorn
What happens if you let a giant fluffy unicorn take you on an adventure with its animal friends to tell you about the power of being your authentic self? The only way to answer that question is by reading the debut children's book from award-winning New Zealand musician Jeremy Redmore and illustrator Jason Crowley — Sing Like A Unicorn.
Sing Like A Unicorn is a read-aloud picture book for children aged 2-7 that's wholly inspired by the idea that inside each of us is a completely unique individual that can be happier, more fulfilled and make the world a better place through embracing their originality. And one of the easiest and most fun ways to do that is by singing!
Jeremy Redmore's sweet and simple story has been placed within a visual wonderland by illustrator Jason Crowley; who brings a semi-fluffy and rather large unicorn to life in a land full of weird and wondrous creatures.
"The voice that Redmore uses throughout is quite something - part music, part story, all heart. This book is the culmination of multiple years of work and is cause for celebration. Sing Like a Unicorn is here to stay and should be part of all school libraries as recommended reading," NZ Booklovers, May 2022.
For first-time publishers Redmore and Crowley — who first met as teenagers while playing in a band at half-empty pubs across Auckland — Sing Like A Unicorn has reunited their creative worlds and, in the spirit of the book itself, is a self-published and limited-edition release straight out of Aotearoa.
Set to follow the book's official release is an original song, written by Redmore, that is sure to inspire a child you love to raise their voice in unison with its chorus, or even pick up a ukelele and strum along with its easy-to-learn chords.
