My name is Glitter Poop and I’m here to show you in nine secret steps how to be a UNICORN. Warning: It’s not always easy being a unicorn. Unicorns are special and totally uni-que. We have crazy names, know how to stand out in a herd, love to ask questions, and always search for the bright side. Most importantly, we make our own magic!

About the Author

Shelli R. Johannes is coauthor of nine books in the Loves Science series (co/Kimberly Derting), Theo Thesaurus series, Shine Like a Unicorn, and Penny: An Engineering Tale of the Fourth Pig (Capstone, Fall 2022).

She is also the critically-acclaimed author of teen novels (written as SR Johannes) including the Nature of Grace series (Untraceable, Uncontrollable, and Unstoppable), Rewired, and On the Bright Side.

She can often be found on highways and country roads saving strays and other jaywalking critters, or volunteering with animal conservation groups like the Atlanta Zoo, the Dolphin Project, and Bosley’s puppy orphanage. After earning a master’s in marketing and working as an executive in Corporate America, Shelli traded out her heels and suits for flip-flops and jeans so she could follow her passion of writing.

She lives in Atlanta with her pack of animals: a British husband, two kids, one bird, one fish, and two crazy Goldendoodles who hate vegetables.

Maddie Frost (AKA Spunky Happyhooves) is a secret unicorn, too. She loves to smile, frolic, and be her spunky self everywhere she goes. She makes her own magic with art, and has illustrated many picture books including Animobiles, Smug Seagull, Wakey Birds, as well as the upcoming picture book Capybara Is Friends with Everyone and the drawing book, Let’s Draw Animals.
