Called an enchanting, compassionate tale" by Booklist, this tender and illustrated middle-grade fantasy about a boy and the unicorn that changes his worldview is perfect for fans of Hello, 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.
