Saviour Pirotta, Jane Ray

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

Jane Clarke

I've been an archaeologist, a teacher, and a library assistant (at Antwerp International School), but I'm now a full time children's writer with over forty published books, plus poems in many children's anthologies, and reading scheme stories. I enjoy visiting primary schools to run creative writing workshops and share my work - which includes the award-winning Gilbert the Great, Stuck in the Mud and Knight Time. I also ghost write several series for the Working Partners group, including the very successful OUP series Dinosaur Cove.I love to collect fossils and go for seaside walks near my home in SE England, and visit friends and family in Belgium and America. And I'm always up for an adventure- like sky diving, white water rafting and hunting anacondas in Venezuela.
