"Unicorns! Unicorns!" Noah calls. "Come aboard! The flood is coming!"
The tarantulas terrapins and tortoises and all the other animals hear Noah's voice but what is keeping the Unicorns? Will they come in time? Or will the world lose for ever the most fabulous beasts?
The rich and detailed illustrations by Sophie Windham match all the magic and drama of this variation of an age-old story, beautifully told by a prize-winning author.
