The Witch's Granddaughter and the Plight of the Plaque Maker coverTHE UNICORN AND THE PEGASUSBook DetailsReviewsThe well published Author David Suffolk started his working life as a surveyor, but at twenty-one decided to enter the world of education and was, for some thirty-six years a primary school teacher working in an independent Steiner Waldorf Schools movement. He taught in UK, Australia, South Africa and Canada. He retired to England in the early nineteen nineties. Most of the characters, locations and situations in this volumes and subsequent ones have their origins in the many and varied experiences he has had with children, adults and animals during the years of carrying the spluttering guttering light of learning round parts of the now deceased British Empire. "The Unicorn and the Pegasus" is a modern fable about how two children through their meeting with a Unicorn and a Pegasus are given a glimpse into the world of elemental and higher super-sensible beings. A dreadful chemical plant explosion threatens a world-wide catastrophe that is averted by the intervention of divine beings. Through the experiences of the children and those connected with them they hope that mankind will take responsibility for the care and healing of our planet. This book was written in 1989 and the message is still vital today.  Published:November 2015 Publisher:Anastasi Ltd Author: David A.
