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.
