Called an "enchanting, compassionate tale" byBooklist, this tender and illustrated middle-grade fantasy about a boy and the unicorn that changes his worldview is perfect for fans ofHello, Universe and Katherine Applegate.

For years people have claimed to see a mysterious white deer in the woods around Chinaberry Creek.

One evening, Eric Harper thinks he spots it. But a deer doesn’t have a coat that shimmers like a pearl, or an ivory horn curling from its forehead.

When Eric discovers the unicorn is hurt and being taken care of by the vet next door and her daughter, Allegra, his life is transformed. He's thrust into a world of magical creatures just as his world at home starts to crumble.

A tender tale of love, loss, and the connections we make, The Unicorn in the Barn shows us that sometimes ordinary life can take extraordinary turns.

Jacqueline K. Ogburn has published ten picture books, includingThe Bake Shop Ghost. She has a cat who sometimes disappears, but has yet to speak English.
Rebecca Green is an illustrator whose work has a home in children's books, galleries, magazines, and more. She lives with her husband, dog, and cat.

"Animal-lovers will adore this enchanting, compassionate tale." —Booklist

"Eric's quiet, genuine, first-person voice tells a realistic story of family love and discovering one's true self, the presence of the unicorn and other magical creatures adding just a touch of whimsy to a story about very real emotions... A sensitive, moving debut." —Kirkus
