Unicorn License


Looking for a unicorn? This is what it might look like.

Local governments work to keep communities safe. They issue licenses for many things. A license is permission from the government to own or do something. For example, you need to have a license to drive a car.

In some communities, you need a license to raise chickens. Many dog and cat owners have a license. But, what about unicorns? Who would you ask for a unicorn license?

You would ask your local government, of course! A young girl in California got the first ever unicorn license. She doesn’t have the unicorn, yet. She’s still searching.

When she does find a unicorn, she’ll be allowed to keep it in her backyard. But, she must follow these rules.

  • The horn must be polished at least once a month.
  • It must have access to sunbeams, moonbeams, and rainbows.
  • It must be fed its favorite treat—watermelon.
