Margaret's Unicorn

By Briony May Smith
Illustrated by Briony May Smith

A little girl finds and takes care of a lost baby unicorn in this beautiful and utterly transporting picture book.

Margaret's whole world changes when her family moves to a cottage by the sea to be near her grandma. One evening, Margaret spots a mist over the water. No, that's not mist ... clouds, maybe? No, they're unicorns descending onto the shore! They vanish as quickly as they'd appeared, but accidentally leave behind a baby, tangled in the weeds. Margaret, lonely and in need of a friend, brings him home... A heart-warming story of friendship and kindness brought to magical life by Briony May Smith's enchanting characters and breathtaking coastal landscapes.

  • With all the feel of a classic, here is a picture book young readers will want to revisit again and again.
  • This adorable unicorn will capture hearts and imaginations, and is the perfect read for young unicorn lovers who are looking for something a little less pink and sparkly.
  • Praise for Tooth Fairy in Training: "The Disney-esque illustrations from Briony May Smith are cinematic and mature enough to tempt older readers too to this pretty picture book" BookTrust
