Crimson, the last of the secretive and elusive unicorns, steps into young orphaned Kinsey's path and life. Within minutes Kinsey finds herself battling a huge and dangerous snake-like river monster with nothing but a magical cloak and a dagger. With the help of a touch of magic she survives, and with her sense of adventure awakened, she agrees to travel with Crimson the unicorn on an incredible journey towards more danger and peril than she could ever imagine.

Kinsey must overcome a band of vicious monsters called jagotchies before rescuing the kidnapped leader of the dwarfs and helping save the life of a young troll-like creature, a Shadow-Blood.

As she travels closer to the battlefield where the nation's enemy is gathering his forces, she has to avoid wolf-like creatures called mungas intent on tearing her limb to limb, escape the clutches of the small but deadly bobaho and kill a giant savage dragon to rescue Crimson the unicorn from a band of shape-shifters.

At every encounter Kinsey discovers more about the cloak's magic secrets, and surprises herself with her own abilities. But war is looming, and old enemies and warriors are gathering their forces. Has she learned enough to be able to defeat the Snake and the deadliest enemy of all, the disease-spreading Pegasus of Peril?

Looking for top childrens fantasy books? Or maybe unicorn kids books ages 8-10 and tweens? Here is a fun, popular childrens fantasy story with ancient fantasy creatures galore (it's a great idea for a tween unicorn gift or fantasy bedtime read).

Not your typical fantasy book for young children, this adventurous unicorn book for girls and boys age 8-10 and tweens has plenty of action and adventure from not only unicorns, but also dragons, trolls, elves, dwarfs and fantasy monsters. A new adventure in every chapter makes this one of the best fantasy books for children--both boys and girls enjoy following Kinsey and Crimson the Unicorn on their adventurous journeys.

Review:

The Adventures of Crimson and the Guardian is a children's fantasy by Karen Cossey. While taking a walk in Pixie Forest, Kinsey sees a cloak on the ground and tries it on, only to see a unicorn appear. She is astonished when the unicorn introduces herself as Crimson and encourages Kinsey to help fight a river monster terrorizing a castle. Kinsey, who lacks defensive skills, manages to defeat the monster as she discovers how magical the cloak is. Crimson takes her on a series of adventures, battling Mungas, dragons, and ravenous jagotchies. They learn that the tyrannical ruler, Snake, has been carrying out his plan to dominate the kingdom. Kinsey isn't trained as others to fight, but is determined to help bring peace to the kingdom.

The Adventures of Crimson and the Guardian is a lovely novella for children who like reading fantasy tales about elves, dwarfs and other mythical creatures. One of its main characters, Kinsey, is a smart and courageous young girl who will come to one's rescue, even if she is afraid herself. Crimson is a caring unicorn, but is easily offended when teased. Although it's a short read, Karen Cossey tells her adventurous tale very well. The dialogue is witty, as well as some of the deeds Kinsey and Crimson completed. Her descriptions of the monsters are great and one can visualize how repulsive they really are. The cover illustration of Crimson is nicely done to complement the entertaining story. I recommend The Adventures of Crimson and the Guardian.
