Mermaid Dreams | Kate Pugsley
32 pages | Tundra Books | Hardcover
A shy little girl goes on a magical underwater adventure filled with adorable mermaids, silly sea creatures, games with new friends and wonderful surprises.
"Pugsley's use of watercolour for the illustrations is a beautiful addition to Maya's dream-like fantasy world [and she] also cleverly uses varying depths of field to illustrate Maya's feelings of loneliness and isolation in the beginning of the story compared to the end." --CM Magazine
"Mermaid Dreams invites children to test the waters of independence from parents, and reassures them that they are not alone in this quest. Using the language of a child's dream world and the shapes and colors of their own crayon box perspective, Kate Pugsley adds a new vibrancy to the enduring mermaid myth." --Imaginary Elevators
