From the publisher

Princess Beatrix is excited to meet the amazing one-horned creature that has been sent as a gift to her father, the King of Portugal. Could it be a unicorn?

But the new animal is not a unicorn - it's a rhinoceros called Genda, who has travelled all the way from India, and Beatrix immediately loves him. She becomes Genda's friend and protector, and is determined to persuade her father the King that this wild creature should be returned to his jungle home.

This poignant story is inspired by the real rhinoceros depicted in 1515 by Albrecht Durer in his world-famous woodcut, which can still be seen today.
