The Last Unicorn

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Whimsical. Lyrical. Poignant. Adapted for the first time from the acclaimed and beloved novel by Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn is a tale for any age about the wonders of magic, the power of love, and the tragedy of loss. The unicorn, alone in her enchanted wood, discovers that she may be the last of her kind. Reluctant at first, she sets out on a journey to find her fellow unicorns. Adapted by Peter B. Gillis and lushly illustrated by Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 21, 2011 – Since it was first published in 1968, Beagle s beloved fantasy novel has been made into a stage play and a film and now this gorgeous, emotive graphic novel adaptation. Set in a fully realized but slightly tongue-in-cheek fantasy world that has inspired everything from The Princess Bride to Stardust, Beagle s story is a romantic fable about a regal unicorn who leaves the forest she has protected since time immemorial to find more of her kin. After a short spell of imprisonment by a witch s traveling circus, she journeys onward with an accident-prone magician, hoping to find the answer to her quest in the land of a coldhearted king and a monstrously fearsome red bull. Along the way, the unicorn and her good-hearted but hapless companion have many encounters, including one with a Robin Hood esque group of bandits who seem dropped in from a Monty Python skit. Beagle s sumptuously descriptive writing, adapted ably by Gillis, casts a spell throughout, while De Liz s glowing, painterly artwork meshes perfectly with the haunting otherworldly beauty of the story.

Customer Reviews


This is one of my favorite stories, looks good on an iPhone, would be fabulous on an iPad, easily worth the ten buck price.

Best book

I love the movie and now I love the book even more.

A Fantasy Classic

I have read many fantasies. I'm still young, but I can assure you that this will remain my most beloved fantasy from now to my grave. This is the kind of story that makes you toss and turn at night, reflecting upon its pages. This is the kind of story you find yourself changing after reading. This is the kind of story you will beg your children to read. I honestly feel as if this tale puts the great literary mind of Shakespeare to a bout of shame.
