The Very Short, Entirely True History of Unicorns

We rated this book:


The Very Short, Entirely True History of Unicorns is the story of how people came to believe in unicorns. It all began with a Greek doctor named Ctesias who lived in Persia. Ctesias wrote a history book about India and in his book, he mentioned the existence of a fantastic one-horned creature. Even though he had never seen it himself, Ctesias had a very clear idea of what these creatures looked like and he described them as having white bodies, with dark redheads and dark blue eyes with one long horn on their heads. He described the horn as being pure white at the bottom, black in the middle and crimson red at its tip. He wrote that this creature was swift, powerful and fierce; no other creature could outrun it, and it could not be caught alive. Through his writing, Ctesias marked the beginning of the history of unicorns.

I recommend this story to unicorn lovers. The book is full of fun facts about unicorns and even gives information about unicorn-themed goodies. It answers many questions that people may have about unicorns and includes some lovely illustrations of these mythical creatures. Although it is based on fiction, The Very Short, Entirely True History of Unicorns is very informational and would be a great gift for the unicorn lover in your life!
