Have you ever seen a mermaid? Eliza has! And this is the bewitching tale of how she and a little mermaid became the most inseparable of friends . . .

Eliza lives next to the sea, with her father, a fisherman. Eliza doesn't know why, but she's always felt different from the other children... So when her father goes fishing, Eliza plays alone. Until one day, a mysterious new girl appears on the beach, with long greeny-gold hair and pale, pale skin. The two soon become inseparable. But when the time comes, can Eliza let her new friend return to her home under the sea?

An enchanting, touching tale about friendship, filled with a wonderful sense of magic, myth and mystery.
Beautifully told and illustrated by the award-winning Jane Ray, this magical story is perfect for mermaid lovers of all ages.

About the Author:

Jane Ray's artwork has gained acclaim around the world. She won the 6-8 category of the Smarties Prize with The Story of Creation. The Story of Christmas was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award, and A Balloon for Grandad was shortlisted for the Mother Goose Award. Jane lives in London.

From Booklist:

The ocean setting is part of the magic in this lyrical picture-book fantasy about a lonely girl who makes friends with a mermaid and then cannot let her go. Shy, solitary Eliza is close only with her fisherman dad. Then one day at the shore, she meets Freya, who gives Eliza a magical shell, and when Eliza puts the shell to her ear, she hears “songs so beautiful that they have to be shared.” Freya is a mermaid who wants to go back to her world beneath the sea, but she has lost her mirror and cannot return without it, so she stays with Eliza, longing for home. Then Eliza finds the mirror, but can she part with her beloved companion? The paintings, in ocean shades, are both glamorous and stormy, and show Eliza’s bond with the beautiful, glittery mermaid, as well as the raging seas and Freya’s grieving mother. Anyone who has listened to a shell will recognize the music. An accompanying CD features the author's reading of the story. Preschool-Grade 2. --Hazel Rochman
