This weekend, I dragged the bf to the mythic creatures exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre. And I HIGHLY recommend you go see this if you can, because it was pretty darn awesome. It had information on dragons, gryphons, sphinxes, mermaids, unicorns, and other awesome mythological creatures. Some of the coolest stuff was when they showed you why people would have believed in these mythological creatures – like how a giant squid could have been mistaken for the kraken, or how ancient greeks would have believed that an elephant skull was really the skull of a cyclops. It was VERY awesome.
Anyway, in that same vein, this week I’m focusing on books with unicorns for my Listed feature. So! Here are ten books with unicorns in them:
