Catalog Craziness

Background:  I'm a Library Assistant at a community college and we don't exactly have the most reliable catalog, it crashes if it is left idle for more than half an hour or so.  This is why I've started putting random word searches into the catalog.  Usually I don't look at the results but this time I did and ended up finding a rather curious book.

This book is part of the Opposing Viewpoints collection which is usually about controversial topics like cloning, marijuana, global warming etc...

So if you know any college students in need of a book that has pro and con essays about unicorns, then well this may be just the book for you.  :)


  1. I ordered this book from It was 1 cent with $3.99 shipping. I just have to have it!

  2. @ArtsyBookishGal, Yeah, that's what I thought when I saw it :). I knew I had to check it out and see what it was all about.

  3. @ArtsyBookishGal, That's awesome, you'll have to let me know if you review it. I know I was excited to look it up and find it actually on the shelf at my library.

  4. Okay, that's hilarious and kind of awesome. Unicorn controversy!

  5. @Kate Trust me, I pretty much did a double take when I saw that it was an Opposing Viewpoints book because every other topic in the series seems to be about serious issues.

    So maybe unicorns are more of a problem then anyone thinks? :)
