The Magical Unicorn Society is opening its doors once again to reveal eight brand-new stories about the world’s most magical and elusive creatures. This time, the stories reveal the little-known facts about young unicorns, which are notoriously secretive and difficult to study.

This beautifully illustrated compendium brings together tales of rare encounters with young unicorns, called younglings, from each of the eight unicorn families. Each story tells the tale of a special relationship formed between a youngling and a baby animal, as witnessed by a young person who is then bonded with the unicorn for life. Find out how a Mountain Jewel unicorn creates a lifelong bond with a wild panda cub and a young man, and follow the Water Moons as they help a young girl and a baby dolphin save their island from a sea monster.

Discover the differences between younglings and adult unicorns, from magical powers that are just developing to the colours of their coats and tails. Follow the flow chart to find out which unicorn family you belong to and discover where in the world you can find a unicorn’s favourite food.

The book also features an introduction by Selwyn E. Phipps, President of the MUS, and researcher Valentina Luz.

"Every page is beautifully designed, in full, vibrant color, with lovely illustrations that accompany the text. It is as inventive as it is thorough, categorizing unicorns into different families and presenting the wealth of information in various formats, including time lines and family trees. This book is sure to delight any curious child who adamantly wants to believe in unicorns and always has plenty of stories to share about them." ―Booklist on The Magical Unicorn Society Official Handbook

“Combination of colorful digital illustrations of unicorns and gentle adventure stories should satisfy anyone who has a soft spot for this mythical beast.” —Youth Services Book Review

“Friends I would have killed for this book as a kid. With eight tales of baby unicorn encounters and information about all of the main types of unicorns, this book is gold.”
