Product Description

About the Author

Some of Michael Hague's earliest childhood drawings were of unicorns adorned with magnificent horns. "I lived in daydreams where anything was possible and unicorns were real. It is wonderful for me to revisit these themes and discover that unicorns still exist and will always be as real as my imagination". Michael Hague was born in Los Angeles and graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He is most well known for illustrating such children's classics as Peter Pan, The Secret Garden, The Velveteen Rabbit, and The Wizard of Oz. He and his wife, Kathleen, live with their three children in Colorado Springs, Colorado. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

A must for Hague or unicorn buffs 9 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Michael Hague's unicorns since 1986, when my parents bought me a calendar featuring his artwork. His unicorns are absolutely fantastic! This book is no exception to that. The drawings are vivid in detail and color. One could get lost in his paintings for hours! As he has does in his other book, The Book of Dragons, Hague uses poems and quotes describing unicorns to accompany his pictures. I highly recommend this book to any unicorn or fantasy lover or Hague lover, adult or child. There is something here for everyone. "After all, there has to be some belief in the magic - however small - for any world to survive." -The Black Unicorn

Oh How Wonderful 27 Dec 2000
By Stephanie N. Small - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was so beautiful. The artwork was splendid, and showed such liveliness and it was very inspirational. Hague has long been one of my favoite authors, and i bought this book as soon as it came out, and it was far above my expectations. you can tell he researches unicorns a lot, and loves them himself. you can tell when someone likes what they are doing. I would like to thank Hague himself for this book with its great artwork and care!

Beautifully-illustrated book on unicorns 5 Aug 2010
By Z Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The strength of this book lies in the beautiful depictions of unicorns in all their glory. Artist Michael Hague's renderings of these glorious mythical creatures are just wonderful to look at - here, the unicorns are depicted in various scenes, e.g. a pristine winter landscape, surrounded by fae folk in the woods, by the lake, soaring through the night sky accompanied by fairies, and many more fantastical scenes.

The illustrations are accompanied by passages taken from famous works, such as Lewis Carroll's "Through the Looking Glass", Shakespeare's "The Tempest", poems, etc. This is a book that will be treasured and appreciated by fans of these beautiful mythical creatures.
Beautiful Artwork 31 Dec 2010
By Howard Waller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Michael Hague is one of my favorite illustrators and this is more of his beautiful art work. You will be hard pressed to find a book with such amazing pictures of unicorns. It's a great book for all ages. Every page is better than the next. It's not a story book, but a poem is accompanies each picture. It's not only unicorns, but faries, fawns, satyrs, gnomes and children. The pictures glow and shine with light and make these creatures seem just as real as you and me. He is truly a master and an unrecognized genius with the paints!
