Reviews

I Believe in Unicorns needs to be bought for every library, school and home ... to share with as many children as we can so that they can experience its magic for themselves. * The Bookseller * A book which deserves to be read to or by every child to assure them that in this brash, too busy world there is still time to lose themselves in a story, to dream a little... If I gave books stars, this would have a twinkling five out of five. * Newbury Weekly News * The whole book has a dreamlike, haunting quality about it that helps to carry the story along - wonderful. * Chingford Guardian * A charming story, beautifully presented, expertly combining fantasy with grim reality. It results in a touching ending...that may have you believing in unicorns as well! * Primary Times in Hampshire * An enchanting tale...the latest offering from ex - Children's Laureate Morpurgo is every bit as good as his previous work. With simple sentence structures, an endearing storyteller and a captivating storyline, this makes a great book for children who have just started to feel confident reading on their own. * Junior * A moving story about unity and inspiration in the face of destruction. * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide * I Believe in Unicorns is as emotional as you might imagine, but Morpurgo pitches it so carefully and perfectly so as to inform the young reader about some of the fear and sadness that war brings without burdening them with the horror of its details. * Bath Life Magazine *
