The brilliantly talented marker-wielding creator of this universe, Brianne Drouhard, has wrought forth a world of such intense charm and adorableness, that even the coldest-hearted football jock will not be able to resist the call to be immersed in this lush and wondrous world.”
– Derrick J. Wyatt, Art Director, Transformers: Animated

Billie the Unicorn seeks adventure! She leaves her cornfield for the forest where her friendly cousins—Rhubarb and Smudge—grow delightful flowers like magic. Soon Billie learns that gardening takes both skill and love. However, the legend of a Queen’s castle, which holds the world’s grandest garden, lures Billie away! But will Billie discover that friendship matters the most? Created by animator Brianne Drouhard with traditional colored markers and pencils, this charming world of Billie the Unicorn will enchant a new generation of fantasy-loving kids and adults who like contemporary art and classic fairy tales.

Billie the unicorn grew up in a cornfield. There she had spent most of her life, sowing kernels, tending stalks, and playing with corncobs. However, she had decided it was time to visit somewhere new. Billie remembered the mystical forest where her cousins lived. Rhubarb and Smudge took care of the woods in their own special way. So Billie said good-bye to the place she had called home and set off to find them.

The forest was beautiful and mysterious. Billie couldn’t wait to see Rhubarb and Smudge. Strolling in the cool shade and listening to the singing birds, she wondered where her cousins were. “Billie!” shouted a voice from the shadows.

“… this book should immediately be made into a movie, since the stunning illustrations look like animation and the theme park tie-in is just too good for Hollywood to pass up.”
