Unicorns are fascinating. At the library, it’s common to hear requests from kids in particular for books on this specific creature of legend.

What is it about unicorns that is so appealing to us? Some people like horses, and unicorns certainly fit the form with the added bonus of having a magical horn. Unicorns are also mysterious, elusive, and otherworldly…and nothing stokes curiosity like the unknown!

At the library, we have books starring a variety of unicorns from gentle and ethereal to silly and spunky. See below for a sample!
