FESTIVAL BOOK

Unicorns 101

The unicorn is the most noble and beautiful of all the beasts. Colourful and shiny coats, luscious manes that smell of cinnamon, sparkly hooves. But not much was known about this fascinating species… until now. Top professors working in the field of Unicorn Science have come together for the first time to create <em>Unicorns 101</em>, a comprehensive guide that will reveal all of the secret science behind unicorns, including biology, history, diet, habitat, and more. But please, handle with care, or you may be seeing sparkles for weeks.
