About the book

Louie in a Spin

Unicorn in New York: Louie in a Spin

Written by Rachel Hamilton and illustrated by Oscar Armelles

“The New York School for Performing Arts is the perfect place for a unicorn like me. So far it has been totally awesome!
Madame Swirler is training me up for a HUGE dance competition. She keeps shouting ‘How will I train a unicorn with two left feet?!’ but luckily for her I have hooves, so we’ll be just fine.”
Louie’s story is brought to life with a unique visual approach, combining real New York photography with funny character illustrations.
