Synopsis

One morning, Ruby is walking on the beach looking for something special to send to her friend when she finds a lovely shell. When she takes a closer look, she notices a golden strand that sparkles in the sun. What can it be? A strand of mermaid's hair, of course! And so begins a new friendship with the mermaid who lives beneath the sea. Told through the voice of the best friend left behind and accompanied by charming, soft watecolor illustrations, this whimsical tale about loneliness lessened and friendship found is one to be treasured.
