Neither handsome nor clever, Jack - the youngest of three brothers - causes his widowed mother much concern. The family is convinced he is nothing but a fool. When his brothers go off to seek their fortune and don't return, Jack is sent to find them. Along the way he performs good deeds for helpless creatures, who repay his kindness in magical ways. Hearing of an evil magician who controls the life of the princess, Jack poses as a suitor and faces three tests - but can he find the elusive unicorn and save the princess from her fate?

Acclaimed Newfoundland author Janet McNaughton tells a classic tale of good and evil, accompanied by Susan Tooke's illuminating paintings, rich with influences from the Middle Ages, Celtic symbolism, and Newfoundland's breathtaking coastal landscape.
