My friend Nancy Sakaduski's new children's book is called "The Mermaid in Rehoboth Bay" and it looks adorable.
Here's a synopsis:
"A storm has hit coastal Delaware and washed a young mermaid named Nibi across land and into Rehoboth Bay, separating her from her family, friends, and ocean home. Terra, a young girl who lives nearby, is afraid of the water, so she misses out on swimming with her friends and wading in the bay to collect shells. The two discover each other, become friends, and find a way to solve their problems together."
