I Believe in Unicorns

By Michael Morpurgo, adapted by Daniel Jamieson

Tomas hates school, hates books and hates stories. Stories are just for “Little Snotties”! He is happier clambering in the mountains like a goat or tobogganing with his Dad.

That is until the Unicorn Lady comes to town and reels him in with her irresistible magic tales. But then disaster strikes and puts everything that matters most in Tomas’s life in terrible danger…
