A unicorn, a haphazard wizard, and a spunky scullery woman journey to the dreaded kingdom of Haggaard, an evil ruler who, with the help of a bull-shaped demon, imprisons all the unicorns of the world. This is one of the great fantasy novels of the 20th century. Since its publication in 1968 it has never been out of print, with six million-plus copies sold around the world, and it has been translated into more than 20 languages.

I have watched the animated movie for years, so many times I can recite the dialogue. The book and movie are very close, almost word for word, so as I listened I could see the movie scenes in my head. Great book, great story.

  • Channeling Grace

"Grace is the breath of God - an invisible essence beyond intellect that moves swiftly amongst us," teaches Caroline Myss. Is it possible to become a living conduit of this powerful force? "Not only is it possible," suggests this best-selling author, "but grace is immediately accessible to you and everyone around you - through humility, devotion, and the courage to follow divine guidance." With Channeling Grace you are invited to ascend to what Myss calls the "altitude of the mystics".

Loved the narrator. Great performance. Kept my attention and felt like listening to a friend tell a story - explaining new thoughts and ideas, painting vivid images and inviting me to share in her journey to find Grace.

This is Merton at his best, applying ancient wisdom to the longings of our age through thoughtful commentary on Scripture and writers of the Western spiritual tradition. This book distills Merton's own reading and long experience with contemplation.

I listen to books at night to fall asleep to. This was nice for that. Made me feel calm.
