Mermaids Fast Asleep

2019by Robin Riding and Zoe Persico

"A stunning and lyrical bedtime picture book that looks at how mermaids sleep in the sea. Written in a gentle, lyrical style that mirrors a lullaby, Mermaids Fast Asleep asks the question that young children have maybe asked before bedtime: Are there mermaids asleep in the sea? As our young human gazes into the water, her imagination wanders as she pictures the life that young mermaids live in the sea. Do they count fish instead of sheep? Do they breathe water like air? The book begins just at dusk as the sky is still Starbust oranges and pinks. And as the book moves on, the colors deepen to blues, greens, and purples until the sky is inky as night and a silvery moon magically glows. Paired with stunning art from Zoe Persico, Mermaids Fast Asleep is a must-have bedtime book for young mermaid fans." -- publisher
