Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The dramatic picture of a unicorn with wings will probably attract readers to this book. The illustrations have a fairy/fantasy appearance which will probably have more girl than boy appeal. The unicorn in this tale has magical abilities—when its horn touches a wound it heals—but even with this great gift, the unicorn wants to be able to have wings and fly. He visits the butterflies, birds, and other creatures, always uttering his desire to have wings like theirs. One day a winged horse appears and it is injured. The unicorn uses its magic to restore the broken wing and as a reward for his good deed, he gets a set of wings. A wish fulfilled in this Level 2 book in the "Step Into Reading" series. The opening page has some good information for parents.
