"Books children want to read, books children can read."

A mermaid story – not pink, not sparkly – a new take on Matthew Arnold’s romantically beautiful poem ‘The Forsaken Merman’:

Here came a mortal,

But faithless was she:

She left lonely for ever

The kings of the sea…

Mara’s mother is missing, her little brother is sick, maybe dying, her father is grieving. It all seems hopeless – until Mara sets out on a life or death journey to bring her mother home.
