Two strange creatures many believe once existed until modern times. An inspiring work the entire family will enjoy with dozens of illustrations. We fear them, revere them, wish we could have them do our bidding. They live in our dreams and haunt our nightmares. Dragons and Unicorns are the magical beasties recognized throughout the world.
