Description

A spirited child sits alone in a dreary backyard wishing for a unicorn. Sure enough, one appears -- he may be kind of scruffy, he's lost his horn and his neigh sounds more like a bark, but he's a unicorn all right. He leads the child through a wood filled with fantastic creatures. Together they storm a castle, defeat a dragon, vanquish an evil wizard and dig for buried treasure. I Wished for a Unicorn sparkles with the boundless optimism of childhood and the power of imagination. With lively, rhyming text and captivating illustrations, this book is proof that wishes can come true!
