Every even the animals gather in a clearing in the forest to tell stories -- fairy tales, myths and legends, fantasies filled with magic and wonder. One evening as Hedgehog heads for the gathering, he sees something extraordinary -- a unicorn drinking from the stream! He is astonished. But when he tells the other animals about it, they assure him that he is mistaken. "The unicorn is just a legend," they say, "a myth. In reality there are no unicorns." Soon, Hedgehog himself no longer believes his own eyes.
Suddenly, there is something very wrong in the forest. The birds no longer sing, the babbling stream is silent, all seems dim and dull. And when the animals meet to share stories, they discover that they have forgotten them all. Luminous, lovely paintings illustrated this enchanted tale about the power of belief and the wonder of the legendary unicorn.
