Rainey, the unicorn, is a prince who has been banished, for centuries, by the warlock, Hazard. He can never return home unless Emma solves more riddles than Kodak. Hazard's Lieutenant reveals his secret weakness. The fable ends with a surprise twist which will delight listeners young and old. While written for children, this fairy tale is sophisticated enough to appeal to adults as well.
Queens, warlocks, faeries, elves, unicorns, handmaidens, scary henchmen and one small mortal girl child, in an enchanted forest. The rhetorical owl and naughty elf provide much laughter. This parable offers many subtle lessons.
