This is an action-packed adventure pitting the unicorn tribe against the evil sorcerer, Magh. The tribe’s legacy says that a blue unicorn will save the tribe, but the tribe’s hopes are crushed when the unicorn is born without any magic. Blue must grow up to face his legacy and face the evil Magh so that he can save his tribe.This is not what I would consider a “chapter book,” so I was thrown off by the title. It is definitely more appropriate for upper middle grade than an emerging reader (the typical “chapter book” reader). It is too long to be a chapter book (42 chapters). Plus, there is violence and death in the book. The evil sorcerer kills unicorns so that he can cut off their horns and hooves for their magic. An epic battle scene near the end is pretty graphic as well.The illustrations are beautiful. I’m sure I will go back and just look at the pictures again – there is much to discover in them.
Makes a great keepsake. Get the illustrated book in print for your fantasy library collection.
