The Eyes of the Unicorn by Teresa Bateman, illustrated by Greg Spalenka
For ages 4-10

This is a most delightful tale that had us engrossed! The duke's castle is abuzz with rumors that a unicorn must be near. Tales of wondrous deeds that prove its presence are everywhere. A once-foul stream suddenly runs clear. An injured woodsman is miraculously healed. An early spring has come.

Greedy for the unicorn's magical horn and valuable hide, the duke and his men prepare to hunt it down. Can it be that Tanisa, a humble serving girl, is the only one who understands that to kill the unicorn would bring disaster? Has her childhood friend, the duke's son, changed so much that he too will join the slaughter? Or is the enchantment found in the unicorn's eyes enough to save the magnificent animal?

The illustrations are amazing - full of beauty and magic. Greg Spalenka brilliantly blends real images into his paintings to present a striking world of make believe.

About the illustrator:
Greg Spalenka is a fine artist, illustrator, and teacher who has created countless illustrations for books, newspapers, magazines and album covers. We first encountered Greg, a most interesting and likable individual, at SRF's Hollywood Temple. Here is what School Library Journal has to say about his artwork in this book - "Lavish scenes rendered in Photoshop blend photographs of the humans and their horses and dogs with painted landscapes and unicorns. Darkened views shot with golden lighting, lengthened images, and occasional blurred focus lend a dramatic, surreal tone to the rather hackneyed scenario. The vigorous, cinematic views and the hint of future love fit a traditional fairy-tale niche."
