Details

Old Mariana longs for friendship, but she is feared by the village children and fearful of the hungry sea-wolves hiding in the sea-caves near her hut. Then one day she finds a Merbaby inside a crabshell and at once she loves it more than life itself - although she knows that one day, when the sea is calm again, the Merchild's mother will come to take her daughter back. Caroline Pitcher's poetic retelling of this traditional South American folk tale is vividly illustrated by Jackie Morris.
