Hard Times For Unicorn
by Mickael El Fathi
Age Range: Under_5
One day a young explorer from Siberia catches the rarest of creatures, a unicorn! But the very next day she is lost in a game of cards. And so, begins a series of adventures for this unlucky unicorn. From fishing in the deep, cold waters of the North Sea to fighting a duel or being used as a vaulting pole by an athlete to performing her own circus acts – the unicorn finds herself travelling the world on her journey to eventual freedom.
Hard Times For Unicorn is a funny and touching picture book by acclaimed French Moroccan author and illustrator Mickaël El Fathi, translated by Gilberte Bourget, that follows the lively misadventures of a plucky unicorn. Accompanied by lovely, vibrant illustrations by French illustrator Charlotte Molas that provides a riot of colour and warmth to this endearing story. El Fathi met illustrator Charlotte Molas by chance on a French train travelling from the South of France to Paris in November 2018. A fortuitous encounter, without which this book would not have come into being.
