Read in October, 2011

If you love beautiful fantasy novels, this is the one for you. A classic that's to be cherished for everyone in all ages. This story has a lovely lyrical narrative of the last unicorn on earth. She's on the quest to find the rest of her species. She teams up with Schmenderick the Magician and Molly Grue, when there's dangers every way from Mother Fortuna's Midnight Carnival to Hagsgate. When she faces the Red Bull, she turns to Lady Amaltea, who tries not to fall in love with Prince Lir, and in the end, she chooses to say goodbye and reunite with her family. In 1982, it was made into an animated movie. This is beautiful and moving.

Jacque I first read this many years ago and it is such a magical tale.

message 2: by Cyn (new) - rated it 4 stars

Cyn I re-read this a couple of years ago when a co-worker had to write an essay & I was helping. Being neither British nor American, she wasn't charmed by this book but I was so glad I got to read it again as an adult.
