Where Have the Unicorns Gone?


By Jane Yolen
Illustrated by Ruth Sanderson

If you're looking for a Unicorn PB, this is a great one. The words are seamlessly-dreamy and the illustrations . . . Gorgeous! There's a nice little surprise for the kids (and adults) at the end.

In the author's notes Jane quotes Leis Carroll in Through the Looking Glass, the Unicorn says to Alice, "If you believe in me, I'll believe in you. Is that a bargain?"

Me too. I've read her Merlin books, but this was the first PB that I read. Beautiful!

What a pretty cover. My youngest loves unicorns. I'll have to see if my library has it.

My daughter would have loved this when she was little! I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

Hi Christy! Have you read many of Jane Yolen's other books? Someone suggested The Devil's Arithmetic for my 13 yo. She's studying the holocaust right now and reading Anne Frank.

Have you read that one? If so, what did you think about it?

I love that line: "If you believe in me, I'll believe in you." And unicorns are so cool. I'll have to check this out. Thanks!
