Description
Poor Tarron loves the sea, but fishing for his greedy brother, Josh, is drudgery. Then unexpected good fortune arrives. Tarron finds a treasure in his net -- an exquisite merbaby with sea-green eyes. As Josh happily points out, their fortunes are now made. But Tarron cannot sit so easily. His head tells him to sell the merbaby or charge people admission to see her, but his heart tells him to return her to the merfolk.Stunning illustrations and a lyrical text weave a haunting story of courage, adventure, and mystery.
