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.”
