Books & Movies: The Last Unicorn

Kiddo and I watched THE LAST UNICORN this week. This was one of my all-time favorite movies from childhood but I had forgotten all about it until recently. I showed kiddo this clip from YouTube and asked if he’d like to see the whole movie. He was very enthusiastic in his yes.

We’ve been so busy that we had to split it up over two nights, but that didn’t seem to matter – kiddo loved it anyway. His favorite part was when the unicorn drove the red bull into the sea. I asked him if he thought the movie was "too girly" and he said no. Cool! Can I add that he even liked the music?! I’m so glad, because I could watch this movie over and over again.

I’ve never read the book (in fact, I didn’t know until recently that there WAS a book) so I have a question for those who have. Are there girl and boy unicorns or only girl unicorns? Kiddo wants to know. My guess is that there are only girls but kiddo is hoping there are both. Does the book mention it?

Ok, I'm about to sound really lame, but here goes anyway:

I'm pretty sure there are both boy and girl unicorns. As proof, I cite the cinematic landmark Legend, which featured unicorns that seemed (to me, anyway) male.

Not the most academic of theories, but it's all I got.

It's been years and years since I read the book, but fortunately I have a copy. The first page talks about unicorns mating, so I assume that means there are both male and female unicorns.

Beth - THANK YOU! Kiddo will be so pleased. :)
