The Difficult Unicorn


David Cregan

Published by Samuel French Ltd

5 Male 3 Female

Every morning, George Jackson, a bank-clerk from Peckham, believes that two million pounds will miraculously arrive in the post and when it doesn't he is miserable

Harry, George's son, sends a message to a mysterious website -, requesting happiness for his dad

He summons the help of a troublesome magical Unicorn, who wishes to be useful not just beautiful, and his keeper, Stanley

However, George is only interested in wealth and the Unicorn has to teach him some valuable lessons before peace is restored to the Jackson house


" The Difficult Unicorn ... sends its audience into the winter night filled with a warm glow that comes from seeing a lovely story told simply and charmingly, and bursting with heart and humour" - Dan Cains, Sunday Times
