Book Description

An original Newfoundland folktale

Neither handsome nor clever, Jack - the youngest of three brothers - causes his widowed mother much concern. Convinced he is nothing but a fool, the family treats him like a servant. When his brothers go off to seek their fortune and don't return, Jack's mother sends him to find them. Along the way he performs good deeds for hapless creatures and unfortunate people, who repay his kindness in magical ways.

Hearing of an evil magician who controls the life of a princess "more beautiful that the day," Jack poses as a suitor and faces three tests. But can be find the elusive unicorn and save the princess from her fate? Acclaimed Newfoundland author Janet McNaughton weaves a classic tale of good and evil, love and loyalty, accompanied by Susan Tooke's illuminating paintings, rich with Celtic influences, motifs from the Middle Ages and Newfoundland's breathtaking coastal landscape.
