I Believe in Unicorns

Eight-year-old 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 and threatens his village, the story will change his life in ways he could never have imagined – and it will change yours too. With dramatic colour artwork by Gary Blythe, this powerful tale of war and hope is simply unforgettable.
