What does it take to create a home for someone who feels alone? When a boy goes fishing, he unexpectedly meets a mermaid. She shows him her submerged world, where no other mermaids live anymore, and he tells her all about his circus home and the Remarkables—the performers who are his family. Could this lonely mermaid find a home with this unusual troupe? Lisa Mantchev tells their story in lyrical, oblique phrases reminiscent of fairy tales, letting readers up to 8 fill in the details for themselves, while David Litchfield's luminous paintings overflow with visual excitement and references to circus acts and sideshow entertainers.
