The Last Unicorn - Peter S. Beagle

Just beautiful..

 

 

I picked this up at my local library as it's a book I've always wanted to read. I always have a happy memory of my dad picking me up and popping me in front of tv with vhs and watching the cartoon of the Last unicorn. It was both mind blowing magical and just also scary! i was only 6 though!  but it was a beautiful cartoon and an absolute Fantasy classic in it's own right.

 

 

And the book???

 

It's just how i remembered the cartoon! The cartoon is so like the book it's unreal. I loved every single chapter and couldn't put it down. you can't help but feel every single emotion the unicorn feels... The author reveals much about his characters. All from the Unicorn to Mommy Fortuna to Schmendrick the Magician all have a vital role. No matter how big or small in the adventure and discovery this novel takes us on.

 

All in all a very magical tale and one i would recommend any parent to read to there child or just have for when they need to escape to somewhere magical.
