Claire and the Unicorn by B.G. Hennessy

A little girl named Claire and her unicorn stuffy conduct social research in her dreams on what makes people live "happily ever after". They ask a fairy, a princess and a prince, Fairy Godmother, and the Wishing Well. They find out that it depends. But I can't help but think that they were asking the question wrong. While they wanted to find out what makes people live "happily ever after" the answers they were getting were regarding what would make people happy now. In any case, it's a cute story, and I like the idea of kids conducting social research on fairy tale characters.
