Where do the Merfolk dwell? In this delightful picture book (the third in the series), charming, water-colour illustrations reveal the secret watery world of the Merfolk, in amongst the lilypads, reeds and rushes.
Their magical world, hidden within nature, is a constantly changing tableau, and as we follow them through the seasons we discover how they work and play. The enchanting, detailed illustrations will appeal to both young and old, and they are accompanied by simple, rhyming descriptions of the magical world of the Merfolk ... the whole book reads like a lovely poem.
