Available to pre-order with delivery on publication


A heartwarming story about kindness, friendship, magic and love written by Caroline Pitcher and beautifully illustrated by Jackie Morris. Having been out of print for so many years Seven Fables welcomes this book back onto our shelves with open arms...


When lonely Mariana finds a Merbaby on the sea shore, hidden inside a crab shell, she loves her more than she's ever loved anything. She takes the baby home and as she grows, the Merchild brings joy to Mariana's life. But Mariana knows that one day, when the sea is calm again, the Merchild's mother, the Sea Spirit, will come to take her daughter back again.


'Jackie Morris’s Klimt-like portrayals of the Sea Spirit demand endless revisits... and Caroline Pitcher’s words are as beautiful as the pictures.' Sunday Telegraph
