KURT – the one and only. Or not?
Munching on Marigolds would be Kurt’s preferred pastime. However, innocent lives are at stake, and Kurt is, like it or not, a noble, if grumpy unicorn.

The sequel to „KURT- Stop the glitter already“ is a wild ride, so fasten seatbelts and enjoy!

When funny, cute Leon shows up at the store and seems to be seeing so much in her that she doesn’t, things begin to shift. And when out of the blue everything her family has been working so hard for is at stake, Zoe finds help where she least expected it – and the strength to no longer hide her true self.

Kurt – stop the glitter already!
A bird that never shuts up, a princess who is not above whacking a prince over the head, and Kurt, the reluctant unicorn who prefers eating his buttercups in peace very much to being stared at for releasing pink glitter with every move and rose perfume with every fart. Why would Kurt set out to save a tiny princess he’s never set eyes on, when there’s plenty of buttercups he could busy himself with? Simply put: Because he is more softhearted – and also more magical – than he was aware of!
Funny, quirky and grumbly – Kurt is a force to be reckoned with.
