If I Found a Wistful Unicorn: A Gift of Love

Ann Ashford

What would you do if you found a wistful unicorn?

This charming gift-sized 25th-anniversary edition of If I Found a Wistful Unicorn tells the story of a relationship with a touch as gentle as the soft brush of a butterfly's wing.

The disarmingly simple text goes straight to the heart of what love really is. Through thoughtful and fanciful questions, author Ann Ashford explores what we risk for love and what special rewards may be waiting for us in return.

Bill Drath's subdued watercolor illustrations perfectly capture the text's gentle tone and important message. This book is meant for sharing with those special ones who touch your life.

This special edition has a smaller trim size, making it perfect for gifting, stocking-stuffers, or tucking away somewhere special. The full size original picture book is also available for those who want to pore over Bill Drath's sweet illustrations at their original scale
