Magical and beautiful, symbols of purity and goodness, unicorns take the stage in twelve tales set in a range of places from the fantastical world of Luster, to ancient China, and to modern-day America. Compiled and edited by the author of over 60 books for young readers, including the Unicorn Chronicles, A Glory of Unicorns gathers together works from award-winning writers. Stories by Janni Lee Simner, Gregory Maguire, Ruth O'Neill, Nancy Varian Berberick, Jessica Amanda Salmonson, Katherine Coville, Alethea Eason, Greg Labarbera, Kathryn Lay, Gail Kimberly, Sean Stewart, as well as Bruce Coville, himself, are collected here. Through the mystical beasts depicted in each story, readers discover what Bruce Coville calls "the unicorn path" a route requiring strength, patience, and courage, but ending in grace and love. Accompanied by sensitive, black-and-white drawings by award-winning artist Alix Berenzy, each story takes the reader on a unique journey. A grandmother sacrifices her life to save her son-in-law and grandson. A unicorn shows a young girl how following her own path can be more rewarding than being in the shadow of her older sister. A handicapped girl learns about the importance of telling the truth when she discovers a unicorn hiding in a school supply closet. Far from being just stories of fantasy, this collection gives readers an opportunity to explore the difficult, yet rewarding relationship that exists between love and sacrifice.
