Everybody loves unicorns! OK maybe not everybody but if you are one that does - this book has an interesting and fun story for teens and older readers plus tons of illustrations to feast your eyes on. It's the tale of a little unicorn who is born into a tribe of magical metal horned unicorns. The poor little thing feels like an outcast because he just doesn't fit in with the rest of them. The story is about his journey to meet his destiny to save the tribe from extinction even though he is not magical and his horn is not like the others.
From Reader's Favorite: Sybrina Durant’s illustrated young adult fantasy novel, The Blue Unicorn's Journey to Osm, is an unusual and enchanting story about a young unicorn’s quest to save his tribe and his coming of age. Durant’s story is slyly whimsical as she builds up the world of Marbryn, a world where there are many wonders, but also threats to the existence of Blue’s tribe. Dasguptarts’ illustrations are masterful and glowing, filled with detail, brilliant colors and excitement. From the first illustration depicting the birth of Little Blue through the succeeding various locales, challenges and adventures he braves in his quest to fulfill his destiny, the illustrations chart each event faithfully and bring each unicorn and ally to life. Durant’s story is filled with action and adventure as well as an earth-shattering battle between the forces of good and evil. She also includes a guide to pronunciation, an Introduction to each member of the Tribe of Metal Horned Unicorns, and an anatomical guide to unicorns. The Blue Unicorn's Journey to Osm is a grand coming of age tale that’s highly recommended.
