A gem. This book is a feast for the eyes and a delight for the imagination. Every page is bordered with beautiful flowers - many of which are explained in the text and the rest of which are explained in the back of the book. Using these beautiful flowering herbs and other classic Medieval references, this book teaches the alphabet through the use of beautiful unicorn lore and artistic illustrations.

Marianna Mayer lives in Roxbury, Connecticut.
"I see folktales and myths as humankind's first stories," says Marianna Mayer. "They are a kind of collective dreaming, filled with timeless symbols and images we can all relate to, regardless of age or culture.
