The Mer-Child: A Legend for Children and Other Adults

by Robin Morgan, illustrated by Amy Zerner - £9.99  The Feminist Press (1991)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781558610545 | ISBN 10: 1558610545

This enchanting story tells of two outsiders who find a deep kinship in each other.
The Mer-Child � with his pale green skin, surf-white hair, and shimmering tail � is not fully accepted in the sea world or the human world. The Little Girl � the child of a black mother and a white father � has been ostracized both because of her race and because her legs are paralyzed.
The bond they weave, against all odds, becomes a wondrous celebration of our common capacity to love.
