Grade 4-8 Within this enticing collection is material enough to bring sighs of satisfaction from confirmed unicorn lovers and make converts of skeptical newcomers. The author of Sarah's Unicorn (Lippincott, 1979) pulls together a wide variety of stories and poems which deal in one way or another with unicorns, introducing them with his own concise history of unicorn lore. This history acknowledges the elusive nature of the myth as well as the beast, and the choices that Coville has made reflect a varied approach to the legend. In the creations of Madeleine L'Engle, C. S. Lewis, Jane Yolen, Myra Cohn Livingston, and others, readers meet unicorns who are old and feeble, sleek and arrogant, demanding or giving. Unlike Michael Green in his elegant De Historia et Veritate Unicornis (Running Pr, 1983), which is consistantly medieval, Hildebrandt has used a wide variety of media and unicorn images to evoke feelings consistent with the stories. This book does exactly what anthologies should do. It satisfies on its own while leading readers irresistably to the longer works of its writers. Reva Pitch Margolis, Norwood School, N.J.
