A Unicorn is Born

Front Cover
Harry N. Abrams, Nov 1, 2007 - Fiction - 88 pages
Ursula, a pregnant white unicorn, prepares to grace the forest with the birth of another member of her rare, wondrous species. As nature’s caretaker, Ursula is already an expert herbalist, magician, alchemist, astrologer, and psychic. Now, awaiting her first colt, she has an opportunity to embrace both the practical and mystical aspects of motherhood. Ursula’s regal intelligence balanced by earthy warmth reveals her to be the quintessential mother and a generous teacher, as she divulges secrets not only about the universality of motherhood but also of confidential, ancient unicorn lore. Ursula’s belly grows, and she delivers a brown, long-haired baby. As this visually stunning pair get acquainted, grazing meadows for snacks, practicing spells, or, later, diving off their favorite rock in a nearby stream, Ursula realizes the true infinity of nature’s power and revels in her happiness at having experienced animal magic in a completely new way.
