Into the (Scary) Land of the Unicorns

I noticed the other day that Z had just finished reading a book called Into The Land Of The Unicorns . The girl reads so much that it's hard to keep tabs on what she's reading or even where all these books come from. I decided I would read it, just to have an idea if the books she's reading are appropriate for her age.

I read the first couple of chapters, which were pretty intense, and then we talked about them:

Me: Your book is a little bit scary.

Z: It's not scary! It's exciting. You know nothing is going to hurt Cara because she's the main character.

(Pause)

Z: Do you want me to tell you what happens so you're not scared?
