Product description

Tomas hates school, hates books and hates stories. But one day, forced to visit the library, he finds himself captivated by the tale of a unicorn. As war takes hold in Eastern Europe, the story will change his life in ways he could never have imagined. But when the library burns, can he keep the unicorn’s power alive? With dramatic colour artwork by Gary Blythe, this powerful tale of war and hope is an unforgettable homage to the enduring magic of storytelling.
