The reader gallops through the story on the back of the unicorn, which will find shelter in the heart of a secret garden, a peaceful alcove where love is awaiting.

The Lady and the Unicorn is an adventure tale of love and magic. The Unicorn's horn was known to have supreme powers and was a prize possession. It could turn polluted lakes and streams into drinkable water for woodland creatures. Hunted by a Feudal Lord, the Unicorn escapes into a secret garden to find a young lady in the middle of the garden playing an organ. She turns a mirror towards the Unicorn, who is magically transformed into a knight. He immediately declares his love for the lady, who smiles at him.

The Unicorn Tapestries in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Cluny Museum in Paris, serves as the inspiration for the story. The book ends with information about the tapestries, that connects the illustrations to the reproductions of the tapestries in order to decipher the symbols and their meanings at the heart of the work. Kids and adults of all ages are sure to enjoy this beautifully illustrated and engaging story.
