The animated film of one of my favourite books celebrated a birthday yesterday! The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle is 30 years old and she doesn’t look a day over 20.
Like The Neverending Story, The Last Unicorn is a story that I will cherish forever and one that I will certainly pass on to my kids. There is certainly a darkness and sadness to this story that translates well into the animated film – I thought the film was beautifully done and remains a cartoon that me and my siblings quote and refer to often.
With this news I think I might just pick up my copy and read it this weekend. It’s been a long time since Schmendrick the Magician entertained me.
