The Lion and the Unicorn is an academic journal founded in 1977. It examines children's literature from a scholarly perspective covering the publishing industry, regional authors, comparative studies, illustration, popular culture, and other topics.

The journal is published three times each year in January, April, and September by the Johns Hopkins University Press. Circulation is 686[citation needed] and the average length of an issue is 160 pages. The title of the journal was inspired from a scene in the 1871 book Through the Looking-Glass.
