About this title:

Synopsis: The classic medieval legend of the unicorn serves as a motif for the alphabet

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-7-- Inspired by the symbolism and design of the medieval Unicorn Tapestries, Mayer has compiled an alphabetical guide to folk beliefs in magical and medicinal powers and symbolic meanings of flowers and animals which are pictorially loosely linked to unicorns. Often, however, the unicorn has nothing to do with the object described. Each page is bordered with flowers (some not identified until the last pages) representing the letter of the page. On some pages, it is difficult to find any graphic depiction of the words representing the letters. For "M," for example, marigolds and mistletoe, the featured words, are not clearly identifiable in the picture. Hague's illustrations are reminiscent of his in the duo's The Unicorn and the Lake (Dial, 1982). Muted colors and elaborate designs predominate. His unicorns range from the magnificent steed representing "U," to a weedy animal seemingly in need of veterinary attention on the "M" page. While Hague's many admirers and unicorn buffs will probably enjoy them, they seem closer to calendar pages, separate and decorative, than illustrations unifying and extending a text. Not a wholly successful choice for an alphabet book, this will attract browsers who may absorb some of the lore, but will probably just look at the pictures. --Louise L. Sherman, Anna C.
