I Believe in Unicorns

Written by Michael Morpurgo

Illustrated by Gary Blythe

I Believe in Unicorns Synopsis

A moving story about unity and inspiration in the face of destruction, by the 2003-2005 Children's Laureate. Tomas hates school, hates books and hates stories. Forced to visit the library, he stops to listen to magical tales that the Unicorn Lady spins. These tales draw him in and are about to change the course of his life for ever... Set against the backdrop of war-torn Europe, I Believe in Unicorns explores the power of stories to transform lives. Produced in association with the Unicorn Theatre, the first purpose-built professional theatre for children in the UK, located on London's South Bank.

I Believe in Unicorns Press Reviews

An enchanting tale...the latest offering from ex - Children's Laureate Morpurgo is every bit as good as his previous work. With simple sentence structures, an endearing storyteller and a captivating storyline, this makes a great book for children who have just started to feel confident reading on their own. * Junior * A charming story, beautifully presented, expertly combining fantasy with grim reality. It results in a touching ending...that may have you believing in unicorns as well! * Primary Times in Hampshire * The whole book has a dreamlike, haunting quality about it that helps to carry the story along - wonderful. * Chingford Guardian * A book which deserves to be read to or by every child to assure them that in this brash, too busy world there is still time to lose themselves in a story, to dream a little... If I gave books stars, this would have a twinkling five out of five. * Newbury Weekly News * I Believe in Unicorns needs to be bought for every library, school and home ... to share with as many children as we can so that they can experience its magic for themselves. * The Bookseller *
