I don’t understand what she means about carrying a five – the only meaning I know for that is mathematical and we haven’t seen any reason why she’d be doing maths. Does it mean something else?
When I first started reading this I was dubious – a strip about a little girl and a unicorn could so easily have turned out to be revoltingly twee. But actually it’s a worthy successor to Calvin and Hobbes, and I’m delighted that Marigold is a “proper” unicorn, with cloven hooves and a lion’s tail and as much antelope as horse. Presumably the males have little heraldic beards.
