‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

In the Land of Merfolk
by Daniela Drescher
Age Range: Under_5
The water folk are playing among the weeds with the newts and minnows. The story follows the secret watery world of the merfolk through the seasons in amongst the lilypads, reeds and rushes.
"At dawn the fairies quietly go
To fetch clear water from the pool.
And only dippers come to watch,
The beauty of the morning cool!"
German author and illustrator Daniela Drescher has written the story in rhyming couplets which are complemented by exquisite illustrations that explore the secret world of the merfolk. The charming, double page watercolours help to bring alive the secret world of the elves and merfolk that will enchant any young reader.
