Product Description

Review

'A moving and stunningly illustrated story for primary school age children' -- Amnesty International, November / December 2001

About the Author

Caroline Pitcher's story Kevin the Blue won the Independent Story of the Year Award in 1993. Caroline's first book for Frances Lincoln was The Snow Whale with Jackie Morris, chosen as one of Child Education's Best Books of 1996 and shortlisted for the 1997 Children's Book Award.

Jackie Morris lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales, with children, dogs and cats. Ever since leaving college, Bath Academy of Art, at least one cat has watched over her while she works. Big cats and small are a passion in her life, and it was while reading and watching her cat Pixie sleeping in winter that the idea for I am Cat came about. Among her many books for Frances Lincoln are The Ice Bear, The Snow Leopard, Tell me a Dragon, and How the Whale Became by Ted Hughes.

This is a excellent and thrilling book.That grips you from the begining to the end it has superb illustrations. It is an old Folk tale from chile with a fasinating story of how mariana bought up a merchild that was washed on the shore.Mariana was told by the Merchild's mother the sea spirit to protect the Merchild from the sea wolves. This is a gripping book and is Definately well worth reading.

This is one of my favourite children's stories of all time. Wonderfully female centred and with incredibly beautiful and accurately observed illustrations which celebrate the magic of the mother baby daughter relationship and the magic of the sea. I wish there were more books like this!

This book tells the tale of a lonely old woman who finds a merbaby. The text is beautiful and sensitive, but what set this book apart are the haunting illustrations. Jackie Morris has created a work of art on every page, and the expressions of the mermaid and her baby are truly wonderful. This book is a must for anyone who believes in breastfeeding and for anyone who loves to see the beauty of mother-baby relationships depicted in art and literature.

Originally I got this book for my then 4 year old from the library, but she loved it so much that I eventually bought it. I still read it to her most weeks. Charming story with really nice illustrations. That's it, really.

I guess you either like Jackie Morris's style of illustration or you don't. I happen to like it a lot. The tale is great and my daughter loves it to pieces, often re-enacting being a mer-child herself in the bath as a result of loving this story so much. We orginally had this out of the library - months overdue, if not years, we've now let them have it back now we've got our own copy. Wonderful and magical.
