It’s Unicorn Day, a celebration of unicorn pride, style, and having “fun, fun, fun!” In a woodland landscape, the unicorns slide down rainbows, dance with butterflies, and catch cupcakes raining from the sky, and a full spread depicts an epic “Glitter Fight!” Readers are sure to wish for their own Unicorn Day (and they’ll want to mark their calendars for

April 9).
