This was one of my all-time favorite books as a child. I agree completely with the other reviewer, the illustrations are brilliant. Very naturalistic, without the wifty-wafty-ness usually accompanied with the subject of unicorns.

The storyline is essentially good vs. evil and the acceptance of the balance that must be kept.

This book gives me chills when I read it.
I can't wait to have kids so I can read it to them! - currently building up my library for kids.

What I found wonderful was that the king and his daughter are black... I love that! Being white, I find that a lot of books are white centered. I do love that this is a beautiful, environment friendly book with people who won't look like my kids!

I totally appreciate Mayer's approach to this book, building the story from three sources (explained at the front, along with a very interesting background on unicorns and their place in ancient stories and beliefs).

While I wasn't amazed by the story's style, I could appreciate it. And I thought some of the illustrations were quite beautiful.

For me, I prefer works by the Craft duo for beauty in both story and words, and but this was along a similar vein. If you like unicorns, I think you'll enjoy this book.

Not as good a reprint as I would have hoped. Oh, the story is wonderful the illustrations are lovely but the paper quality ,the color the bidding just aren't the same as I got my children way back in the late 70's early 80's . My suggestion is , this book is a classic . In it's best form it is an heirloom to be past from child to child and from parent to child.Tthis particular copy will never hold up. take the time and extra money and go find an old edition.

unicorns, animals all get along together until serpent comes. Unicorn saves the day along with beautiful story line and great art. A good way for conversation to follow about good and bad of the world and how we can work together. Am giving my grandchildren the book along with a beanie baby unicorn for Christmas.
