This is a beguiling and concisely researched book on the elusive unicorn spotted, immortalized, and documented throughout history. There is so much in this book to ponder, love, and then be inspired to learn more about.

From Penguin kids’ rep, Colleen Conway: This first title in a new series brings us all the dirt on what is really real about our fascination with unicorns. The Very Short History takes readers from early descriptions in Ancient Greek travelogues, through the obsession in the visual arts of the Middle Ages, right up to Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino– made with mango syrup, crème, and sour blue drizzle. But not one drop of unicorn.
