Nerdycorn is a Children's Picture Book by Andrew Root and Erin Kraan.

Fern isn't like the other unicorns. While everyone else is all about jumping over rainbows and diving off waterfalls, she's building robots and coding machines to suit her whims. Sadly, the other unicorns often like making fun of her and excluding her from dances for her ways.

So, one day, she decides she's had enough of this and stops doing things for them. They soon come to regret how they acted.

The book was published on May 18th, 2021.
