Some of Michael Hague's earliest childhood drawings were of unicorns adorned with magnificent horns. "I lived in daydreams where anything was possible and unicorns were real. It is wonderful for me to revisit these themes and discover that unicorns still exist and will always be as real as my imagination." Michael Hague was born in Los Angeles and graduated with honors from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. He is most well known for illustrating such children's classics as Peter Pan, The Secret Garden, The Velveteen Rabbit, and The Wizard of Oz. He and his wife, Kathleen, live with their three children in Colorado Springs, Colorado.From Library Journal :
Grade 3-5-Exquisite illustrations are paired with poetry, prose, and medieval legends in this stunning collection. The literary selections are sophisticated and include excerpts from Shakespeare's The Tempest, Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, W. H. Auden's work, and Volksleid (a German ballad). A reverence for "the unicorn with the long white horn" unifies these seemingly eclectic works. The lyrical excerpts lend themselves to being read aloud and the beauty of the language together with Hague's full-page pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations create an enchanting world of cold mountain streams and forests inhabited by wizards and winged fairies. Those who have enjoyed Jane Yolen's Here There Be Unicorns (Harcourt, 1994) will also be interested in this book of unicorn lore. A unique addition to storytelling and fantasy collections.
