Praise For The Secret Lives of Unicorns

"Robin illustrates in dramatic spreads that combine elements of fantasy with the aesthetics of a vintage picture encyclopedia. Seraphini’s earnest tone will persuade nonbelievers, and maybe even move them to help dwindling unicorn populations (by picking up litter and growing native plants)."
Publishers Weekly

"Wonderful detailed images of the different species of unicorns, the scientists, the landscapes, and other details described."
