If you love The Frog Prince and The Elves and the Shoemaker, you'll love this tale of love, magic ... and unicorns!Annis and her grandmother live in a cold, draughty castle on top of a hill, which they share with their chickens and their cow. They may be poor, but Annis's heart is full of kindness. Offering a home to an injured unicorn and a family of fairies one day, her kindness is magically rewarded. But will her good fortune bring her happiness and love?This entrancing contemporary fairy tale is brought gloriously to life by Hans Christian Andersen Award nominee Jane Ray."Jane Ray's jewel-bright illustrations shine like the flourishes of an illuminated manuscript in Saviour Pirotta's The Unicorn Prince, featuring a crumbling castle, a dauntless heroine, industrious fairies and an enchanted prince. Gorgeous gowns, wild dreams, transformations and galloping moonlit freedom are also thrown into the mix." Observer
