Pearl by Molly Idle

In this undersea world, mermaids are the guardians of ocean life. Some watched over the waves, some guarded the ocean giants and some tended to the kelps below. A young mermaid named Pearl longs to be like them; to have important responsibilities and to feel needed. So when her mother gives her a single grain of sand to care for, Pearl is frustrated and disheartened. What begins as utter disappointment for Pearl, transforms into hard work and achievement, culminates into a shining climax.

The illustrations are full page throughout depicting the ocean in deep hues against brighter colourful mermaids with light peering from above. The result is luminous and captivating. Molly Idle uses coloured pencils for her art; creating a soft and fluid environment. An illuminating tale both in words and pictures. Recommended for ages 4+.
