Princess Eleanor meant no harm and is trying to overcome obstacles of her own.

Princess Eleanor meant no harm and is trying to overcome obstacles of her own. Jun 05, 2011 Nora rated it it was ok. This book feels like it was written about a 10 year old, for 10 year olds, by a 10 year old. I may being overly critical when I stop and consider the novel is intended for younger readers, but I also don't feel that's much of an excuse.

Thank you, Carol Hughes, for writing this book. This book is about saving a kidnapped unicorn from being Sold and returning it back to the wild . It is truly special to me and very close to my heart. Unicorns and fairies are real and everyone knows it!!. i have not been kidnapped.

I have a one on one book club with my eleven year old grand daughter. This was her choice. I thought it was a very good book for young girls and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. My granddaughter thought it was "wonderful". Now I will pass it on to my ten year old granddaughter and I am sure she will enjoy it too.

My grand daughter, 8 years old and an incessant reader, really enjoyed this book. We had been searching for it for some time.

The pink cover depicts a golden-haired girl and white, golden-haired unicorn. What young girl wouldn't want to open and read this modern-day fairy tale? And fairy-tale it is! Princess Eleanor, the only daughter of the king and queen of Buckingham Palace, befriends a unicorn she sees at the edge of the royal forest. She entices the unicorn to be her pet, not realizing neither the unicorn nor the forest will thrive in its absence. The fairies of the forest know the dire consequences, and it is up to Joyce, a fairy similar in age to the princess, to get the unicorn back. An empowering coming of age story for girls, this reinforces a strong feminine `can do' perspective, and comes complete with a feminine villain a la Cruella DeVille. One snarky error is detrimental to readers in the know: 3:15 am London time is forged as 9:15 am in America.

Young fairy, Joyce, is happy when she sees the unicorn of the forest, but she's not happy for long. Princess Eleanor takes the unicorn away, not knowing how her actions will affect the unicorn and the forest.

Now Joyce must set out on a journey to bring the unicorn back to the forest and save her way of life. But it's not an easy task and Joyce is met with many obstacles along the way.

Princess Eleanor meant no harm and is trying to overcome obstacles of her own. Can she help put things right?

Hughes creates a wonderful tale of growth and discovery in THE PRINCESS AND THE UNICORN. This is a fun and enjoyable read.

This book will be "just right" for 4th and 5th grade girl readers who love fairies, princesses, and unicorns. It has no sexuality, no rough language, and almost no violence (a gun is brandished but not used). It has a mild environmental message, and a stronger message of girl empowerment, as the two heroines both become stronger in different ways: the princess learns to assert herself more, and the fairy succeeds in achieving her quest.
