The Unicorn in the garden

United States, 1969

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Based on a short story by James Thurber, this is a gentle reminder that people do not always see things as we do. A poor henpecked husband sees a unicorn in his garden and excitedly tells his wife. She calls the police and a psychiatrist, wanting him to be committed, but in the end it is she who is taken away.
Suitable for middle and upper primary and lower secondary levels.
