Synopsis

The Christmas Unicorn by Anna Currey

A heart-warming story, set in the days leading up to Christmas, about one little girl's magical encounter with a unicorn. Christmas is just days away. A little girl called Milly and her Mum are staying at Grandpa's house. Dad has been kept away but will join them just as soon as he can. But Milly feels a little forlorn, away from her friends and without her Dad. And then something wonderful happens. Milly meets Florian, a unicorn. One snowy night, he patters into Grandpa's house and transforms Milly's Christmas, filling it with friendship, surprise and sparkle. And somehow, Florian makes all Milly's wishes come true. Anna Currey has crafted a beautifully written and sensitively illustrated picture book that will delight every generation as families come together at Christmas. Upon its first publication this book received many warm reviews, including: 'A beautifully written and illustrated book.' Publishing News and 'Softly realistic illustrations with just a touch of magic.' The Children's Bookseller.
