Alyssa Carothers | 1 comments Hello, I'm trying to find a picture book that I used to read in elementary school all the time. It's a nonfiction children's picture book about unicorn mythology and history and it compared different kinds of unicorns from different cultures. I remember the art style being very beautiful and unique. I only remember three pages clearly:

1. One was drawing examples from the Bible and there was something about the Garden of Eden. I believe the illustration was of a unicorn running through flames.

2. Another described Chinese unicorns and the illustration depicted Genghis Khan encountering a green unicorn.

3. The last was about Peter S. Beagle's novel, The Last Unicorn, and had an illustration of the unicorn in battle with the Red Bull.

I read this in the mid- or late 1990s. Internet searches of unicorn picture books has turned up nothing so far (there's so many!). I'd really like to see this book again for the beautiful artwork.
