Julie Rudner | 2 comments I read this book in the 1970's. Probably not a children's book. Odd and a little sad, I think, All I remember is white horses turning into the white caps on waves.

The unicorn is mistaken as a horse. I never read the book, but I saw the movie as a child, and I definitely remember the image of the other white unicorns as caps of waves.

The horns came riding in like the rainbow masts of silver ships.”
― Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

Does that sound familiar?
